(This is a gown before and after it was worked on to create beautiful burial garments. Plus the name of whom donated)
Heavenly Angels in Need was one of the very first organizations that came up with the concept of using wedding gowns/prom gowns for the materials to turn into burial garments for babies whom have passed away. We started doing this in 2004/05-
Do we accept gowns?
Our answer is no not currently. When we put the call out for these kind of donations the gowns by the hundreds started pouring in. Many times the headquarters had 10 or more gowns daily for over a year or so. We finally had to halt accepting them. We have many gowns to work on still and want to work through them before another call is made.
We are in desperate need for seamstresses. We have simple patterns for our volunteers (only) in our downloads tab/link at top of forum. Anyone can make items from these gowns and hand sewn or machine we are open to help. If you would like to help HAIN in this way join our forum and ask us how to get started!
For other places who might be accepting gowns please go on google and search wedding gown donation to burial garments/ angels gowns etc..We do not want to list sites on here due to changes of information is constant.
