99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Hung out with some people last night

Went out with another for lunch.

And now I have work.

So. Fucking. Tired.

But, much better than a few weeks ago when I was terribly lonely.

It’s called Redirection.

what she do???

Yea what she do now?

She a had homeless young man accept her award as the camera panned to her and her fake crying in the audience…. The young man spoke about the homeless situation, especially in LA…. Not to take away from that issue, but she (or her publicist) knew exactly what they were doing…. With all that is going on in the world, let alone the country, THIS is number one. Yeeeeaaaa.

Yea I just saw it. I was confused as hell watching that. Also, supposedly MTV cut the people in Ferguson interview out the show. They trying to change the focus so much

RIGHT?! Homelessness is a huge problem but really? Bringing awareness to that?! The young man she put on stage CHOSE to be homeless and comes from an upper-middle class family from Oregon! He CHOSE tone homeless when his parents stopped paying his college tuition. Fuck that. I ain’t supporting your fake shit.

I heard it was her cousin lmao

Yeah. Because it’s not like there are 610,042 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States.

And it’s not like, of that number, 222,197 are people in families, and 387,845 are individuals.

And it’s not even like ~18% of the homeless population (109,132) are considered “chronically homeless.”

And, hey, screw the fact that about 50,000 youths in the U.S. sleep on the street for six months or more.

I’m sure the fact that she did what she did at the VMAs totally won’t have any impact on how her fans respond to homelessness. And it’s totally selfish of her to talk about it. No form of suffering should be discussed unless it’s the specific kind that you find most treacherous, right? Okay then.

There’s a lot of bad shit going on in the world. I have posted a shit ton about Ferguson on my main blog and a light amount on here. I stay involved in that and try to make sure people I know are informed and take action to help the side of justice (i.e. Mike Brown, to be clear). But as impassioned as I am about it, I do realize IT’S NOT THE ONLY PROBLEM IN THE COUNTRY OR THE WORLD. OTHER SHIT IS GOING ON SIMULTANEOUSLY.

But you refuse to acknowledge that she tried to do SOMETHING good when no one else did. All you want to do is rip her to shreds because it wasn’t to your liking. Even if 10 people volunteer at shelters or bring food to local homeless or whatever because of what she did, it’s more than what would have happened from her going up and talking about how grateful she is for her makeup artist and her costume designer or whatever the fuck celebs normally talk about in their speeches.

So all of you can go eat a big back of gonorrhea-coated scrotum because I am so fucking sick how nothing certain people do is EVER good enough for some pricks.

BLESS THE LAST COMMENT GOD YES PRaise PREACH HONEY YOU GO
