Along with the Pikachu Oops! spin-off, Pokemon Center exclusive ORAS starters and legendaries (Groudon and Kyogre) plush, and ORAS starters 1:1 size plush release, the ORAS games, and the limited edition New 3DS with special Groudon/Kyogre plates officially went on pre-order today.
The Center opened up at 8:45 am (official opening time is 10 am!) When I entered at 8:45, it was fairly empty, but by the time 10 am came around, it was jam packed full of people. Also, for reasons I will never understand, the queue for simply pre-ordering the games was the same queue for the people pre-ordering the 3DS systems, which meant the line was horrendously long (roughly 3 plus hours).
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
