Everyone, meet Caroline Kunitake. She is a fantastic friend, toastmaster, and wonderfully altruistic soul. We get into a talk about what really drives her to do the things that she does. Specifically we get to talking about what pillowcases have to do with dresses for little girls in Africa. In one of my more focused conversations we get to talk about what motivated Caroline to work with"Little Dresses for Africa" and what really drives her to sew. We also digress into some bits about the election, the current state of affairs for the nation (pre November), as well as other places unmentionable at this point. I'll let Caroline tell the story from here. I had a great time with this talk and I know you will too.

- www.littledressesforafrica.org is the website for the project we refer to in this episode. Here's a blurb from the organization itself:
"Little Dresses for Africa, founded in 2008 byRachel O’Neill is a registerednon-profit 501c3 Christian organization. Our mission is to provide relief to vulnerable children throughout the Continent of Africa and beyond. Volunteers from all over the world join together to make little dresses out of pillow cases or other simple patterns. Some sew. Some donate. Some go to Africa, and some send others. Little Dresses for Africa sends the donated dresses through misions teams, mails them directly to verified communities and takes them personally with their short term teams. Your donations are distributed through orphanages, churches, and schools. Together, we can make a difference."
