I’ve recently been commissioned on a truly amazing project. My good friend Shanna has been working tirelessly with this brave little girl named Aaliyah in overcoming her anxiety disorder. She is seven and has selective mutism, which makes her feel unable to speak in social situations. For the past three years before Shanna started working with her, she has been completely mute outside her home. The progress Shanna has made with her in finding her voice and finding the courage to speak to people is nothing short of SPECTACULAR.
To show her what a superstar she is for coming this far, Shanna is organizing a dream photoshoot with Aaliyah! She’s commissioned me to make the dress, and you guys know how much I love making sparkly princess dresses! It’s so rewarding to know that something as simple as a dress is exciting and encouraging Aaliyah to speak on voice to Shanna to talk about what she wants it to look like! And I want it to look PERFECT!
Here is where we need your help!
The budget for this project is $400 - this will cover supplies, fabric, accessories, photo printing, etc. And we need your help making that money! Anything we raise above and beyond that will help us make the photoshoot even more perfect and princess-like! Please help us show Aaliyah how brave her accomplishments are!
You can donate on GoFundMe - any amount of signal-boosting is appreciated!!
