CANDICE TALBOT
DRESS A GIRL AROUND THE WORLD

Originally from Long Island, New York, Candice Talbot attended Mackinac College in Michigan and Mankato State University in Minnesota.  She married David Talbot, founder of Crutches 4 Africa in 1976 in Colorado and they have foster parented 10 children over a period of 10 years. 

Candice worked as a dental assistant for 32 years and a professional wedding and portrait photographer for 32 years as Talbot Photography and Videography.  She lived in a United Methodist Mission in Appalachian, KY for several years and spent a year and a half in Israel working on a Kibbutz near the Egyptian border.  She loves to weave on a loom, has done leatherwork for many years, as well as stained glass, knitting, needlepoint, and cooking.  The hobbies are on hold now as she has made a full time commitment to Crutches 4 Africa as Director of Operations.

When in Africa in 2005, she taught sewing to locals in Uganda for a week, making dresses from huge donated t-shirts.  She stayed in touch with the founder of Hope 4 Women.

Dress a Girl Around the World is a Campaign under Hope 4 Women International (a 501 (c) 3 organization) bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006.  Dress a Girl Around the World was started with pillowcase dresses at that time.  Candice has made many of them herself, and continues to contribute help when possible with creation and distribution around the world.

Dress a Girl Around the World dreams of a world in which every girl has at least one new dress.  They want girls to know that they are worthy of respect, and that they are loved by God.
