We interrupt this blog for a good cause...

If you're anything like me, your hall closet could use a good cleaning out!

Meet my friend Rachel. She's an art teacher for both middle and elementary schools, and, thanks to a grant by the Virginia Beach Education Foundation, she's making a difference.

Rachel collects gently used sheets and pillowcases, does a little sewing, teaches her students how to get creative with atypical recycled materials and makes these fabulous dresses for women and girls in Africa.

If you'd like to donate any sheets and/or pillowcases, just throw them in a bag and drop them off at Beach Scrapbooks. Rachel will do the rest :)

Do they need to be solid white or can they be printed?

She'll take whatever you want to donate :)
