FY12 Dress Distribution #14 - For the children of the Shrine of St Joseph Church, Philippines

It has been about three months since my last dress distribution. In addition to the Make-it or Break-it Christmas Charity Drive activity, Dress A Girl Australia will also be focusing on distributing dresses as planned.

Number 14 on the distribution list is a collection of 150 dresses which will be distributed to some 150 children of the Shrine of St Joseph Catholic Church located in Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines. The distribution will be carried out by Leila Sevilla and her husband who is the Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus of this church. Both of them are active in conducting charity works such as medical and dental missions, feeding program, scholarship grant, legal works and she wishes to add dress distribution to her list. Well, Leila, your 150 dresses are on their way.

Here are the 17 plastic bags which I have finally finished packing and are ready to be placed inside the box that I have prepared for it. Luckily, the box will be picked up from my place otherwise I have no idea how I can manage to lift 20 kilos of dresses. :-).
(they looked so neatly piled up but right after I took the picture they started dropping one after another :-)) -
