Dress A Girl Australia's final statistics for the year 2018

It is finally here and shows that not much has happened with Dress A Girl Australia in 2018. Total dress distributions is 97 for the whole year and were distributed in the Philippines and Siem Reap, Cambodia during my personal travels to these two places in 2018.
Total dresses distributed from 2011 to 2018 is 9,907. It would have been nice if 10,000 was reached but due to financial reasons it just was not possible. Am looking forward to reaching this landmark in 2019.

Thank you to  everyone who made these numbers possible.

[2019 Fundraising Drive Sale] - Cute and funny 'Dammit' Dolls

Ever wondered if there is something you can hold onto when you are not feeling great or when things dont go so well? Try this cute and funny 'dammit' dolls. Each doll measures about 15cms in height and when things don't go so well, you will not feel guilty slamming it. Each doll is made of 100% cotton. Fully handmade and made of 100% cotton fabric. Eyes, nose and lips are hand embroidered and hair is sewn to the top of the head. Strong and ugly-looking enough to be slammed on the wall without feeling a bit guilty of hurting it. And while slamming, say 'dammit, dammit, dammit'. Check them out. Click on any of the images below. You will love them you have to purchase one of them.

Written on the front of the doll is the message below -
"Whenever things dont go so well and you want to hit the wall and yell, here is a little dammit doll that you can't do without. Just grasp it firmly by the legs and find a place to slam it. And as you whack the stuffing out, yell "dammit, dammit, dammit".

Proceeds from the sale of these cute dolls will be donated to Dress A Girl Australia's dress distribution fund for the new year 2019.
