99-year-old woman sews 1,000 dresses for children to celebrate 100th birthday

Lillian Weber sewed 1,000 dresses for children to mark her 100th birthday.

She made the donation via charity organization “Little Dresses for Africa”.

Generous giving is certainly the manifestation of a good heart, and 99-year-old Lillian Weber, has made a hobby out of making a difference for children in Africa.

Weber has been sewing dresses for a charity organization called “Little Dresses for Africa” that also helps build schools and dig wells for drinking water.

Old age has not allowed old age to hinder her from reaching out to humanity.

Weber was hoping to sew 1,000 dresses by her 100th birthday. Not only did she meet her goal, but she actually finished ahead of schedule.

“Nine times out of ten, they always say, “Well old people don’t do anything,” but they do,” Lillian revealed in an interview.

“And as soon as I get this one done, I’ll probably go to the next one,” she said of her 1000th dress.

Little Dresses for Africa was founded by Rachel O’Neill in 2008 and is a registered non-profit 501c3 Christian organization.

The organization’s mission is to provide relief to children throughout the Continent of Africa and beyond. Volunteers from all 50 US States, as well as Australia, Canada, the UK, and Singapore, join together to make little dresses out of pillow cases or other simple patterns.

‘‘We need a lot of kind people like her. Thank you Lillian Weber for everything you do,’’ the organisation said on its website.
