– “Attention All Fabric Fanatics – The Yelm Chapter of Days for Girls needs your help”
“For those of you who have a few spare yards of fabric laying around waiting for pigs to fly—the Yelm chapter of Days for Girls needs fabric donations. On July 23, 400 young men and women between the age of 19 and 30 want to spend their day in service and they have chosen days for girls.org as their service project. We have an opportunity to put these 400 young people to work sewing, cutting, ironing, making feminine hygiene kits. We need to collect 600 yards of 100% cotton fabric to efficiently use all this “man power”. We have an opportunity to make a difference and you and your fabric can be a big part of that difference.
The material should be brightly colored and patterned if possible. The fabrics should not depict food or any kind of an animal, butterflies excepted. These rules might seem arbitrary, but because of the countries where they are sent, we respect their beliefs.
If you have fabric you can donate, or would like to donate cash to help us buy fabric please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
