Attention: Dress Donation Notice Effective June 1, 2021
After receiving an incredibly generous number of donated wedding gowns this year, The Emma & Evan Foundation will not be accepting any further donations unless they are accompanied by a keepsake order for the remainder of the year.
We will happily welcome dress donations along with keepsake orders. Our wedding gown keepsake items are all hand-crafted from materials sourced from your beautiful wedding gown. We offer a variety of keepsake items from heirloom hankies, pocket squares, and garters to ornaments, decorative initials, and lockets.
Financial donations and orders of $100 or more will receive a complimentary locket made from your donated dress.
For the remainder of 2021, we will continue to accept and process all gowns that are donated with a keepsake order. We will craft your lovely, sentimental keepsake and use the remaining materials to sew angel gowns.
If you wish to donate your dress, but do not want to place an order for a keepsake, we ask that you kindly hold your donation until further notice.
WHAT WE DO
We support families who have lost the littlest of souls far too soon.
Donated wedding dresses are transformed into beautiful infant burial gowns, also called Angel Gowns. These gowns are offered to hospitals, birthing centers, funeral homes, and directly to grieving families completely free of charge.
We have a dedicated board of directors and an amazing network of volunteers from all parts of the US who set aside some of their time in the hopes of providing just a little comfort to a family going through the unthinkable tragedy of losing a baby. With 1 in 4 pregnancies ending in a loss, there's no shortage of grieving families who could use some compassion. Our volunteers are constantly thinking of programs to offer these families along with creative ways to raise money to help make this non-profit sustainable. In the near future, we would like to be able to help families financially with burial expenses or cover bills from missing work.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
We offer a selection of keepsake items that are lovingly made from YOUR own wedding dress.
