Final Numbers for 2012 and Christmas Charity Drive

Ok. It is time to close off the year 2012 and what a year it has been. It has been a year for benchmarks  for Dress A Girl (around the World) Australia and I hope I could do better in 2013 or be able to replicate at a minimum what was achieved in 2012. 

For the whole year 2012
Total dresses collected in 2012                         1,742  vs goal of 1500
Total pairs of shorts collected in 2012                  390  vs goal of 500

Final numbers for the 'Make-it' or 'Break-it' Christmas charity drive :
Total dresses collected                                     396
Total pairs of shorts collected                           109

Total Distributions Made
Total dresses given                                           938
Total pairs of shorts given                                 176

With the above numbers of dresses and pairs of shorts distributed, it brings Dress A Girl Australia's total number of dresses and pairs of shorts distributed to 1,060 dresses and 179 pairs of shorts since it started in March 2011. When I first looked at these numbers I could not believe it that I had to go to my log and started checking each line of journal again but it all added up. 

Places of distribution were Uganda, Kenya, Papua New Guinea, India, Myanmar Burma, Vietnam, South Africa, Australia and the Philippines. For more details on these distributions, please check the 'Dress Distribution' tab located at the top of the page.

There will be more dress distributions in the next few months.

My heartfelt thank you to everyone who made these numbers and achievements possible. You know who you are. Thank you for making 938 girls and 176 boys in different locations around the world own at least one dress and/or one pair of shorts. Thank you for making it a reality not just imaginary for these disadvantaged children. Thank you all for your amazing kindness and generosity. It is very much appreciated. Thank you.

I also want to say thank you with all my heart to everyone who bought my handmades. Without your purchase sending some of these parcels would'nt have been possible. Thank you so much.
