Blessed by Delta Kappa Gamma Lamda chapter!

Last night I was the guest speaker at the Lamda chapter of a Delta Kappa Gamma meeting.  DKG is a a group of key women educators impacting education worldwide.

Here is the link to find out more about this wonderful group:

These are the purposes of the group listed on their website:

To unite women educators of the world in a genuine spiritual fellowship;
To honor women who have given or who evidence a potential for distinctive service in any field of education;
To advance the professional interest and position of women in education;
To initiate, endorse and support desirable legislation or other suitable endeavors in the interests of education and of women educators;
To endow scholarships to aid outstanding women educators in pursuing graduate study and to grant fellowships to non-member women educators;
To stimulate the personal and professional growth of members and to encourge their participation in appropriate programs of action; and
To inform the members of current economic, social, political and educational issues so that they may participate effectively in a world society.

This was really fun for me to share with them what Hope 4 Women International and Hope 4 Kids is all about and most of all...what Dress a Girl Around the World is!  It went well and was very well received!  Many of the women were moved to donate on the spot and I collected just over $100 to help pay for supplies and ship more dresses to David Wagner of Father's Heart Ministries in Florida! What a blessing as I have about 700 dresses ready to ship!

Even better, many took a copy of the dress instructions and seemed interested in making dresses on their own or with sewing groups they are part of!  I told them I would email them once we had our next sewing date scheduled.  Most women live fairly close to our town and many are in it!  I always need more help sewing so that would be really nice.

I so appreciate offers of help whether it is financial, offers of supply donations or help constructing dresses!  No sewing experience is necessary and I will help you if you need/want to learn how to use a sewing machine.  Please share this website and my Facebook page with your friends that they may also learn what Dress a Girl Connecticut is doing to bless little girls around the world!
