Help Ella Teach Sewing to Underprivileged Women

Hi, my name is Ella.  I created a sewing business called Sew Awesome when I was 10 years old to raise money to buy sewing equipment for women in developing countries.  I have been donating 50% of my profits to a charity called Sewing Seeds for the last 2 years and have been able to donate the equivalent of 4 sewing machines.  Visit My Website 
A few weeks ago, my charity, Sewing Seeds contacted my Mom and asked if I would like to join them on one of their volunteer trips to Mexico this coming May!! I will be volunteering at Volcanes sewing school.  Sewing Seeds opened the school in 2015 to help many single parents and families who were from one of the poorest areas in Puerto Vallarta and were struggling to meet the basic demands of feeding and clothing their families.  The sewing training has become the main source of financial stability for many of these families.  

I am really excited to volunteer with the team at the school and I have been told that we will also be donating sewing machines to the Women's Shelter and a local Artisan group.

Sewing Seeds is entirely volunteer-driven and so I will need to cover my travel, accommodations,  and food expenses during the trip. 

As a little thank-you, MY ONLINE STORE 

- $25 donation will receive a Free Bookmark (from my online store)
- $50 donation will receive one of my Card and Bookmark Duos (from my online store)
- $100 donation will receive a package of 5 Cards (from my online store), 
and if you are representing a business, I will gladly mention the donation from your business through my social media.   

I appreciate all the support in helping me to fulfill this goal.  I can hardly believe that it is going to happen!

If you would like to learn more about the sewing school I am going to visit in Volcanes Mexico, please watch this short video.
