With Christmas fast approaching, I am pleased to let everyone know that Project Christmas 2015 opens today. The collection is open for sizes between the ages of 1 to 12 but I do encourage everyone to be more open-minded by donating new handmade dresses between the sizes of 6 to 12 as these are the ages of girls that I believe really needs clothing the most. Since it is Christmas I will not be setting a maximum number of dresses that can be donated but remind everyone that it is quality of dresses that counts the most and not quantity. Guidelines on dress making should be strictly adhered to. You can checkout the guidelines here.
I do not plan to send the parcels for Christmas distribution at the last minute and also there is a cut-off for Christmas parcels that will make it for Christmas delivery with the freight transport that I am dealing with which is the 6th of December so I am setting two cut-off dates.
First cut-off date is Friday, 23rd of October. Dresses that make it to this cut-off will be sent by Sunday, 1st of November.
Second and final cut-off date is Friday, 27th of November. Dresses that did not make it on the first cut-off will be included in this batch and will be sent by Friday, 4th of December.
Please make sure you send your parcels before the due date as this is the Christmas season. Deliveries become very slow. Also, it takes time to sort, pack and organize the sending of these parcels especially because it is Christmas.
Please do not send any dress donations after the second and final cut-off date as those dresses will have nowhere to go.
For those who do not sew or do not have the time to sew, why not try my Dress Sponsorship program. For $10.00, you get to share your Christmas blessings and make a disadvantaged child feel special this Christmas. Check out my Dress Sponsorship program here. Proceeds from the Dress Sponsorship will be donated to the Pittwater Friends of Soibada, a non-profit organization based in Avalon NSW to help them with their construction projects in Soibada Timor Leste.
All donations must be in my postbox by the cut-off dates specified above. Postal address is Dress A Girl Australia P.O. Box 240 Casula Mall Casula NSW 2170.
Any questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This Christmas project will be the last distribution for the year 2015.
