99-Year-Old Woman Spreads Love By Making A Dress Every Day For Children In Need


If you ever felt like you didn’t have any way to help others in need, wait until you meet Lillian.


99-year-old midwesterner Lillian Weber has an extraordinary hobby that helps clothe children halfway across the world.


For the past two years, the nonagenarian has been sewing a dress a day to send to young girls in need in Africa through a non-profit Christian organization called Little Dresses for Africa.


She begins every morning by working on a dress, takes a short break, and finishes up the details in the afternoon.


Lillian even personalizes each dress to make it special for the little girl that receives it.


So far, Lillian has made over 840 dresses, but her goal is to make 1,000 by the time she’s 100 years old on May 6th.


It’s amazing to think that this sweet woman brings joy and confidence to so many young girls.

6In an interview with WQAD-TV, Lillian revealed that she hopes to be able to see a little girl receive a dress she’s made. The founder of Little Dresses for Africa, Rachel O’Neill, responded by saying that she will personally deliver a garment on her next trip to Africa in early 2015.
