99-Year-Old Woman Sews 1,000 Dresses For African Children

99-year-old Lillian Weber has made a hobby out of making a difference for children in Africa.

Weber has been sewing dresses for a charity organization called “Little Dresses for Africa” that also helps build schools and dig wells for drinking water.

Weber was hoping to sew 1,000 dresses by her 100th birthday. Not only did she meet her goal, but she actually finished ahead of schedule.

“Nine times out of ten, they always say, “Well old people don’t do anything,” but they do,” Lillian told reporters.

“And as soon as I get this one done, I’ll probably go to the next one,” she said of her 1000th dress.

According to the charity’s website:

Little Dresses for Africa was founded by Rachel O’Neill in 2008 and is a registered non-profit 501c3 Christian organization. Our mission is to provide relief to children throughout the Continent of Africa and beyond. Volunteers from all 50 US States, as well as Australia, Canada, the UK, and Singapore, join together to make little dresses out of pillow cases or other simple patterns. Some sew. Some donate. Some go to Africa, and some send others. Little Dresses for Africa makes all the arrangements, through misions teams, mailing directly to verified communities and we take them ourselves with a team at least once a year. With your help, we get the dresses (and britches for boys!) to the children, and distribute them through orphanages, churches, and schools. Together, we can make a difference.

  3. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: [email protected] or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
