Just before the end of the year, I received a sweet message from Becky in Atlanta, Georgia. As an elementary school teacher with a heart for children around the world, she was thrilled to learn her wedding dress could help students in Malawi achieve their goals in education.
Becky and her husband, JJ, were married June 11, 2016. Here is Becky's dress story:
I was determined to find a dress I felt comfortable and beautiful in, but a steal of a deal. After looking at a common store, I found one for $999. I couldn't bring myself to spend that on the dress, so I looked at another store where my sister found hers a few years earlier for $500. I prayed that I could find one for less than that. I went in the store and found a rack of sale dresses from $99 - 299. After trying on almost 20 of these dresses, I found the one I loved, a $1,200 tag for $99. I was thrilled and felt it was an answer to prayer. I never thought this dress could impact children in another nation...
