Hello everyone! Recently my husband discovered a wonderful program that re-purposes wedding gowns into tiny dresses for families that have lost a child while at the hospital. These dresses are provided to grieving families in hopes that they will help provide comfort. Giving a grieving family something beautiful for their loved one is a small gesture but I think it can help show them that their lost one was special. These dresses are made with care and lots of love by volunteer seamstresses.
Today I mailed my wedding dress off to the NICU Helping Hands’ Angel Gown Program. I think this is a very special cause. To learn more about the program click here.
The address to mail dresses is below:
NICU Helping Hands C/O Ideal Partners
6913 Camp Bowie BLVD Suite 181
Fort Worth, Texas 76116
They recommend removing the crinoline from the gown for easier shipping, wrinkling is not an issue, and they will accept gowns with stains because other parts of the gowns may be use-able.
