Right: As the dresses cover the gym floor in Edinburg, the scope of the project is evident. "Haiti relSresents how the poor- est of the poor live," Lorraine said. Because the children they see at the Real Hope for Haiti clinic and the Rescue Center often are mal- nourished and the island climate is hot and humid, Ally and Sierra's project featured a pillowcase dress design. The dresses are adjustable with ties around the neck to adapt to a child with a small frame. They fit a cultural need as well as a medical one. The feeling of making a differ- ence in the lives of these children is an indescribable one. As Ally and Sierra shared their journey of in- spiring strangers across the coun- try to join them in clothing the needy, friends and family through- out the gym could be seen wiping tears away. For Ally and Sierra it portant possessions. Simple things we take for granted are considered unessential, as their primary goal isto feed their families. For many of the girls who re- ceive these dresses, Lorraine ex- plained, this is the first time they get to put on something new. "They get to put on a dress that says, 'I'm beautiful.'" Lorraine married Zach five and a half years ago. She went on a mission trip to Haiti and they con- nected. She joined the mission to make a difference. "When you find your passion in life your persevere," Lorraine said. "When you find your passion, you find your purpose." She urged the students to take note.
