The Check is in the Mail!
Good news! Our Gift (donation) for the Sewing machine has finally reached the magic total of $270.00. The Ladies of the HVQG reached the goal, before the end of the year! Yeah, hip, hip, hooray!!!
This sewing machine will lift a woman out of poverty. It will go to a poverty-stricken woman or girl in a country like Zambia, Ghana, or Ecuador, the sewing machine our guild has provided can be a doorway to a better life. This gift will show a single mother, orphaned teen, or HIV-positive widow how she can make a decent living as a seamstress to support herself and her family.
This gift is provided through World Vision, they will provide a teacher to show the woman that has been selected how to us the machine and how to operate her business. If anyone is interested in other gift donations they can go to World Vision and select the gift catalog to see the other options.
