The person behind Dress A Girl Australia
I work full time as a Business systems analyst in one of the major Australian companies here in Australia.
My exposure to handmade crafts started when I was still little. My mom used to recycle old clothes into nightwear, make fabric yoyos out of scraps and create them into beautiful placemats or table runners, crocheted curtains with a peacock design. These skills she inherited from her mother. I remember my grandmother used to make dresses for us.
My Dad also liked to create things by hand. He used to recycle old tables or tables with broken legs into a chair or a wooden toy wagon. When he retired from work, to keep himself busy he would make small beds for my nieces and nephews and would put wheels on it so it was easy to tuck or push them under their parents bed and not occupy space during daytime.
I love making things by hand. The smaller it is the crazier and better as I get a real feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment when it is done.
My love for crafting and travelling inspired me in 2011 to start a charity work where I provide dresses to the less-fortunate children around the world. I finally found something worthwhile to do where I can make use of my hobby and craft skills to help other people and it is not just any kind of help but helping most especially the disadvantaged children. If you want to know more about this campaign, please visit my Dress A Girl Australia blog here.
It is with my crafting handmade cards that I was able to raise a small donation to a Breast Cancer research foundation here in Australia by donating a dollar for every handmade card I sold. It is with my sewing that I was able to raise money to build a well to provide clean water to the people of Kalagi, Uganda and water tanks in Vietnam through the Christina Noble Children's Foundation.
If you like to craft and want to make a difference in this world through crafting, please join me in this campaign. Every little girl deserves to own at least one dress and how proud would you be if you helped make this dream possible.
