Losing a baby is more than just the loss of a a tiny soul. It's the loss of an entire lifetime of band recitals and baseball games; a lifetime of hopes, dreams and memories.
It is our goal that every mom and dad who suffer the loss of their baby should leave a hospital or birthing center with a memory box. A box filled with love and compassion to let them know that their pain is shared by others.
To accomplish this goal, we need financial support to purchase the items that make up this heart-felt gift.
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.
Every memory box includes:
*Book, "I'll Hold You in Heaven"
*Small Picture Frame
*Packet of Forget-Me-Not Seeds
*Hand Made Quilt or Afghan
*Angel Gown or pouch in the appropriate size and gender.
We have budgeted the bare minimum cost of the box and items down to $15, not including shipping. Shipping is ~$15.00
This is where you can help. We are looking for support from others, wishing to comfort grieving families and willing to commit to a one-time or monthly contribution of $15. Showing love to one family each month during a dark time in their lives.
