99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Needย 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weberโ€™s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, sheโ€™s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one โ€“ but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
