We hoped to raise funds to cover the cost of sewing machines for the students in our class. The fundraising goal was set slightly high in order to bring in the minimum that we needed. But thanks to you, we raised $200 more than what I thought was an ambitious amount to begin with!
We've already had three students receive sponsored sewing machines and another one is getting hers within the week. As I've talked to the ladies and learned more about why they wanted their own machine, I've realized that the Babylocks we're delivering are about much more than simply sewing a napkin or two. These machines represent new opportunities, new goals, new potential.
Your generosity made this gift possible. And thanks to the extra funds, you're sponsoring not just our current class but also the students soon to join us.
On behalf of all the students at Make Welcome, thank you for showing God's love.
