Welcome to the Sewin' Up A Storm Team Fundraising Page! We are a group of gals from Kansas City who want to help children around the world. This is where GO Threads and the 2011 Team Challenge comes in. What is GO Threads? A sustainability initiative of The Global Orphan Project, GO Threads sewing centers are small businesses located in extremely poor areas of the world. The centers create local jobs; produce quality clothing, including children’s school uniforms; and generate profits to help sustain orphan care costs.
So what are we trying to do? Raise as many $20 uniform orders as we possibly can, hopefully raising enough to order 2,000 ($40,000) uniforms. You may ask why a child's school uniform? A simple, $20 uniform can bring hope to many. Check out the short video on this page to see what's all in a uniform.
Together, Sewin' Up A Storm hopes to raise the funds to place 2,000 uniform orders before December 31st. We hope that you will join us!
