Host a BIG DINNER in your town
It's BIG year at Little Dresses for Africa as we celebrate our 10th year serving in Africa. This is a perfect time for you and your group to join with us in our third annual BIG DINNER fund raiser. We are so delighted to receive all your beautiful work, but our job is not finished until they are on the backs of these little children.
We have discovered a way to get us all involved in a common goal to support these efforts. All across the world on Saturday, September 29, 2018, groups big and small, will host dinner parties to support the shipping of the millions of little dresses that are received. As these dresses are distributed, relationships are formed and needs are met. Realizing that we can't do everything, LDFA has decided to focus on 3 things that we know change lives immediately and for the future, while drawing the community together. Our projects are through: clean water, education and community. Clean water saves lives immediately, reduces disease, increases sanitation, keeps girls in school and raises the standard of a community immediately.
Primary education changes the future and gives these children a chance to continue their education into secondary school provided by the government. Community sustains these projects.
One exciting community effort is our new sewing center in Malawi. We have built a beautiful building and will be shipping more sewing machines to make this skill available to many. It will offer a sustainable income and teach the students to manage their money. We are very excited about this project.
Our theme this year will be a Safari Night Dinner party which will include a full dinner, a gourmet dessert extravaganza, live music, raffle and auctions both live and silent. Tickets are available here. You are welcome to use this theme, our birthday party theme or get creative with your own ideas. Other cities will be hosting fashion show luncheons, or trivia nights. Last year one group even had a "stay home and support LDFA" night for those busy schedules. Use your imagination but help us by hosting your party as we join hands with Little Dresses for Africa BIG DINNER hosts all across the world raising support to transform remote villages with clean water, education and community projects.
"We're not just sending dresses, we're sending hope." Thank you for your support.
