Another girl to inspire all of us

This is Sigourney. She is 8 years old and is sewing dresses for disadvantaged children around the world.
Just like her mum, Karin Maltby from Perth, Western Australia who is doing a great job making dresses and spreading the word, she has been so inspired by the Dress A Girl Around the World project that she has taken an interest in learning how to sew! And look, she is holding the first dress ever she has made. The fabric that she used to make the dress was donated by a friend of Terry Medley whose passion was sewing and wanted him to look for a home of her vast collection of fabrics before leaving this earth. And what a great place the fabrics ended up with. 

Just like Dress A Girl Australia, Sigourney is imagining a world where every little girl owned at least one dress. She is making this a reality by learning how to sew and helping make those dreams of children owning at least one dress in their lifetime come true for each of us deserves to own at least one. Doesnt this touch your heart and inspire you to do the same? 

First there were the group of schoolteens from Bridgetown High School of Western Australia, then my 21-yr old niece Samantha, then Charlotte and Claudia and now Sigourney. I wonder who is going to be the next kiddie on Dress A Girl Australia's block helping disadvantaged kiddies around the world. It makes me feel very happy and very proud of what I have accomplished this past year, inspiring young people to be involved, (and by accident because of this campaign) finding another way of creating a more close and fulfilling relationships between a lot of mothers and daughters through sewing and at the same time helping disadvantaged children.

If you want to help make a difference in this world, come and join us on this great campaign of dressing girls around the world. Please help us spread the word around.
