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.

This is so incredibly precious, this actually makes me tear up with happiness!

It was maybe over 10 or 11 years that I had it dyed bleach blonde once a week. I didn’t realize that when you dye your hair you have to continually do it every single week, I thought you just dyed it and it stayed one color…So it was a pleasant relief to be allowed back in the sun as well; that was something I had to stay out of from getting any tan. So it was quite nice to go on holiday after a few years of doing that.
