Lillian Weber is a dressmaker who wanted to use her skill to help other people, and that was why she planned to sew 1,000 dresses for less fortunate kids before her 100th birthday.

However, when she celebrated her 100th birthday last May 6, Weber not only accomplished her goal but even surpassed it when she donated a total of 1,051 dresses to Little Dresses for Africa, a non-profit Christian organization that has sent more than 3 million dresses to young girls in 47 African countries and 31 other countries.

And she does not merely make plain, uniform dresses — she adorns each one with a little something extra, be it an extra stitching or a special detail.

“She personalizes all the dresses,” her daughter Linda revealed. “It’s not like good enough that she makes the dresses, she has to put something on the front to make it look special, to give it her touch.”

I’ll go at it again because there’s no reason to do nothing.”

Somebody who’s 100 years old still putting out this quality with such a positive and inspirational message, it’s just been wonderful,” said organization founder Rachel O’Neill. “Lives are really saved because of these dresses.”
