Nathalie asked yesterday about how the Corsage Project went this year. It was a huge success – but I am sorry to say that donations were down in terms of the number of donors. We still had a large number of items donated – don’t get me wrong – but they were largely donated by just a handful of people – which was a little disappointing.
I believe over 300 girls were outfitted – the number rises every year. It’s good that more and more girls are being helped and are graduating – it’s sad that the number that need help isn’t going down.
And my apologies – I did not manage to get photos of the pieces this year. It’s just that the timing was off in terms of when they were delivered to us and when they were picked up. Also – a significant number of them were by me – and it felt too much like self-advertising to put up a page of photos of my own work for that purpose.
Thanks for asking Nathalie!
