My friend Amy (One Artsy Mama) learned about Mallory last March when she was contacted by a woman named Rory. She was seeking donations for a silent auction to benefit a ministry her daughter, Mallory, started called Project Yesu. This ministry is about providing food, medicine, and education for children in Uganda. Well, guess how hold Mallory was when she started Project Yesu?
Mallory and her team have been busy over the past year (they even took a trip to Uganda this past October to deliver 450 pounds of supplies). She has another trip planned for June 2013 and wouldn't it be great for all of us to support this amazing young woman? Well we can!
One of the items that the team wants to take with them in June are pillowcase dresses....as many pillowcase dresses as they can collect for all the poverty-stricken girls. They are super simple to make and you don't even have to be a seamstress!
For those of you who sew, here is Sew Like My Mom's Easiest Pillowcase Dress Ever
For the non-sewers out there, Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom's No-Sew Pillowcase Dress Tutorial will guide you.

You need to have your dresses completed and mailed no later than May 31 so they can get the dresses packed in time for their departure in June. I'd like to challenge each of you to make at least one dress. If you are involved in some sort of youth group (i.e. church group, 4-H Club or Girl Scout Troop to name a few), this would be an excellent service project for them to get involved in.
I'd love for you to leave a comment with how many dresses you make so that I can tally up how many all of us send to Yesu! We can all help Mallory make a difference! (To learn more, stop by Project Yesu's website.)
