HOW TO DONATE

Donate Fabric and Supplies

Before purchasing fabric please review the List of Criteria for fabrics. Also, check out this helpful Fabric Guidelines Chart.

Donate Funds for Fabric and Supplies

  • Place cash donations in the "tip jar" on sew day.
  • Make a check payable to "Days for Girls International" (Memo: Spokane WA Team). Mail directly to Days for Girls at 102 Ohio Street
    Bellingham, WA  98225 OR give to Cherrie/Darcy on Sew Day.
  • Donate online at the Days for Girls website.

CHERRIE's DREAM LIST

  • Flannel is still on sale at Joann fabrics and now with additional $5 coupon off $35 spent. 2 yard increments work best (ie., bolt is 8 yards)
  • Large see-through storage bins
  • Color-Catchers for washing fabrics, especially batiks  (in laundry section of store)
  • Heavy Duty lint rollers
  • Packages of girl's panties (Target, WalMart)  
  • Hotel size soap bars
  • Ziplock (brand specific) freezer gallon bags - tabs only - no zippers

Quality Control

Our goal is to make a quality item that lasts for 3 years. Everyone needs to be familiar with the quality control criteria for every item they work on. Items that don't meet the criteria cannot be included in a Days4Girls bag.

Continued excitement about the project

This is an ongoing project and we're looking for interested individuals to lead one of the areas we're working on. I have 2 ladies who will be doing our quality control and inspection of all items produced.

We are an Official Days for Girls Team - The Spokane WA Team, having passed our sample evaluation. We had to send multiple pictures alongside rulers and with closeups to show we met the quality control criteria of each component - bag, shields and both regular and heavy duty liners.


We support Choshen Farm and the work they do with girls in the village of Fimpulu in northern Zambia.

Days for Girls Sew Day

What if your girls missed a week of school every month? That's a thing in rural Africa. It's not uncommon for girls around the world to miss school because they don't have the products they need.

The Garland Church sewing group is partnering with Days for Girls and Choshen Farm with a goal of making 1000 sustainable feminine products kits for girls in Zambia. Women and girls of all ages are invited to come sew with us. All skill levels are welcome.
