After the show aired, Eunice’s popularity skyrocketed. Orders began flowing into the sewing co-op, and she started receiving donations from major companies as well as individuals to help care for the kids. A radio show even donated $17,000 so the sewing shop could afford materials for the increase in orders. And thanks to some entrepreneurial advice, the workers are training to work with recycled cloth, use plastic bags in creative ways, and package their goods in old plastic bottles.
