“THE SMALLEST ACT OF KINDNESS IS WORTH MORE THAN THE GRANDEST INTENTION.” — OSCAR WILDE
Every month we are humbled by the women who don’t just talk about being part of the change… They are the change!
Special thanks to our workshop leader, Teri, who introduced the girls to the basics of sewing by hand and then how to sew their own pillow case / duffel bag by using a sewing machine! Teri came to us by way of one our faithful volunteers, Bindu, who took sewing lessons from her at @Gromes! Bindu wanted to share her passion for sewing and asked her teacher to lead the workshop with her and she said YES! Then she asked her sister who also sews !! Spreading the word about Chicktime by way of a good ole grassroots movement!! Priceless!
The morning was so special! For many of the girls it brought back fond memories of good times they spent with their grandmother who they either watched sew or who taught them a little bit about sewing.
Chicktime San Antonio leadership team member, Letty Rodela, asked her mom to join us as she sews too! The girls gravitated to her as she reminded them of their grandmother. This!!!
Great snacks, life skill taught, safe and loving space, laughter and genuine care and concern for the girls placed at Boysville best describes our July workshop…
oh!! And the closing prayer led by one of the teen girls… wow!! We certainly left with hearts full!
