Dress Distribution #18 - Dresses for the children in care of The Pyjama Foundation

Yes, I have done several distributions but it takes a while to identify the donors of the contents and the last few weeks hasnt really been of much help in sorting and figuring out contents of each parcel but has been a great help in making the distribution and sending of parcels possible. Now that I have completed the donation acknowledgements, it is time to move on for the dress distributions.

Number 18 on the list were two parcels of 100 dresses which I donated to the The Pyjama Foundation in NSW as christmas presents for the australian children under their care. The foundation offers a learning-based mentoring program free of charge to children in foster care through community volunteers they call the Pyjama Angels.

The two parcels were sent almost two weeks ago  and were received by Lisa O'Brien, their Sydney Coordinator. There will be no pictures available for this distribution due to privacy and legal reasons.
Here are the dresses that were in the parcel -
