"Threads of Love" Haiti Pillowcase Dress Project - 5,167 Dresses Donated - Oct. 2011
"People understand suffering and want to help. "Threads of Love" gave everyday people the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than themselves." - Lila Womack
Mission: To provide pillowcase dresses for the orphans and poverty-stricken girls in Haiti.
Goal: To involve the community in making 5,000 pillowcase dresses to donate to the Haiti Care Mission.
"Threads of Love" was an inter-generational global initiative that solicited new pillowcase donations and seamstresses from across Georgia and six other states, including Washington, DC. As a result of Lila's hard work, dedication and leadership, within a four-month period, seamstresses, individuals and organizations contributed thousands of pillowcases to the “Threads of Love” project. In fact, 5,167 new pillowcase dresses were shipped to the Haiti Care Mission.
