THE STORY:

-------------------

Lake Forest College students and other students in the Chicago area are itching for social justice! We are going to raise money for the Go Threads project to hopefully better the world around us. We desire to focus on things other than ourselves, and learn how to change the world in our every day lives.

We have learned that in third world countries, orphans need care, children need education, and parents need jobs. So we decided to support "Go Threads," a fundraiser happening from now until December 31, 2011 that strives towards fulfilling all three of these needs.

One donation of $20 orders one school uniform to give to children who cannot afford them. As you may or may not know, if a child does not have a uniform, they cannot attend school even if tuition is free. This means that so many of the children living in poverty or with no parents have no chance to get an education.

But the money goes to so much more than that. The Global Orphan Project has been developing local sewing communities in these villages. They are teaching the people how to sew, supplying them with bulk materials and sewing machines, and your donation is creating the demand.

In these beginning stages, without our "orders" from these communities, there is no other source of demand to keep them going. Unfortunately, these hard working people cannot compete with the "Free Aid" line that gives away the used clothing that we are finished with and have donated to send over seas. With no demand in business, they will go home jobless.

By buying a uniform instead of donating an old tee shirt, you will be re-building the economy of these people as well as helping them dress themselves with dignity.

You can learn more about this process by watching a video at gothreads.org/how-it-works. I would be so honored if you would join me in this quest for social justice.
