The Princess Project....
A woman from Toronto volunteers at an orphanage in India for abondoned children with special needs. There, they have something called The Princess Project, where they bring pretty dresses and accessories for the little girls to dress in to feel beautiful and special...most of the time they wear raggy clothes. She contacted my mom through her etsy site, Dragonbees, and asked if she could donate a couple of dresses...my mom decided she will make every single girl her very own dress! The recipient girls are aged 3-7. My sister, who lives in Hawaii and makes/sells seashall jewelry, has decided to join in the project and make each older girl her own unique shell necklace. Please help me raise the funds for my mom and sister to purchase the materials they need to hand-make the vintage style dresses and Hawaiian seashell jewelry.
**I have set a $5000 goal. Once the cost of materials is covered, the rest of the donations will go directly to the orphanage in India, Sarah's Covenant Homes. So, PLEASE KEEP DONATING!
Every $1 helps. By getting involved, you help tell the world that no one is insignificant, no one is trivial, and that each child’s talent or strength deserves a chance to shine!
