Today’s Seva story #49 of 100 comes from Chris who lives in Makawao. I am collecting 100 Seva stories to share ideas, inspiration and spread positive news, Seva means selfless service for the benefit of community and the environment.
Chris belongs to Maui quilt guild redwork group and they recently got together to sew pillowcase dresses for disadvantaged girls in Africa. You can find more infrmation about little dresses for Africa under the website here:http://www.littledressesforafrica.org/blog/pillow-case-pattern/
Little Dresses for Africa, founded in 2008 by Rachel O’Neill is a registered non-profit 501c3 Christian organization. Our mission is to provide relief to vulnerable children throughout the Continent of Africa and beyond. Volunteers from all over the world join together to make little dresses out of pillow cases or other simple patterns. Some sew. Some donate. Some go to Africa, and some send others. Little Dresses for Africa sends the donated dresses through misions teams, mails them directly to verified communities and takes them personally with their short term teams. Your donations are distributed through orphanages, churches, and schools. Together, we can make a difference.

Chris enjoyed getting together with friends while sewing to make a difference. Please share your Seva story with me so we can spread the Seva. Aloha and Mahalo, Johanna Waters firstname.lastname@example.org
