Little Dresses Bring Hope to Malawi

Civics and World - General

Dresses for girls in MalawiRachel O'Neill fell in love with the sweeping vistas of Malawi, Africa, but especially with the little girls, whose only clothing were the thread-bare dresses on their backs.

Her original idea was to get a church group to sew dresses for her to bring back for the children.

Eventually, word spread and dresses were sent from all fifty states, so many that it took teams of volunteers to sort them, and it became a symbol of friendship from women 8,000 miles away.

Every day I get to work in the morning, get my coffee, jump online and read the news. Every day I go home sad and depressed... Then I found your site and after reading the first story I immediately felt my spirits lift and I never went home sad again. Reading ordinary news we get a sense that that's all there is, but your site reminds us the world is not as bad as the news would lead us to believe. Thank you for everything.
