THE LITTLE DRESS: A JOURNEY OF HOPE

 

We believe your members would be excited to know about our new documentary, THE LITTLE DRESS: A JOURNEY OF HOPE, from MEN OF THE CLOTH director Vicki Vasilopoulos. Our independent film highlights themes of female solidarity, love, empathy, and creating a community. It features Lillian Weber -- an amazing 100-year-old volunteer who has a life-affirming mission sewing a dress every day for needy young girls in Africa. We’ve been following Lillian and Rachel O’Neill, the founder of Little Dresses for Africa, since 2014. 

We recently launched a crowd funding campaign that has the support of the ASG's Executive Director, Margo Martin. We're raising funds so we can film in Africa in April — our goal is to tell the story of the little girl in Malawi who receives Lillian's beautiful dress and the impact it has on her life’s journey. 

In the first week of our campaign, we’ve reached 27% of our goal of $17,000, but we need your help to build grassroots support. Would you be kind enough to share the campaign link and video (https://igg.me/at/thelittledress) on your website, in your newsletter, or on social media? Those who sew for charity know they're a part of a larger community of kindred spirits. Please encourage your members to share it with their friends and family (share tools are on the left side of the campaign page). Thank you so much for your support! 

All best,
