I stopped by the school today to see the t-shirts for myself. They are pale--not the purply, grape soda color I wanted, but they are still pretty shirts. I talked with the principle and she said the kids are thrilled. They got to see the results of something they made with their own hands. It's all good.
There are still a selection of shirts that need to be dyed. Each grade's shirts are purple plus one other color (green, turquois, blue). Staff, such as the lunch workers, will have shirts that are purple plus all three colors. Friday, the whole school is wearing their tie dyed shirts! How cool is that?
On another note, have you been following the Uniform Project? It's a daily fashion project raising money for a specific school in India. The clothes are imaginative and the kids are....well....kids--wide eyed and sweet. Check it out here.
