***Please note I am NOT able to accept dresses
in person or dropped off***
I can only accept mailed dresses.
-All dresses must come from a NON-smoking home.
-There is no need to have your dressed cleaned before mailing; all dresses are cleaned and pressed before they are transformed into bereavement gowns.
-Remove any items from your dress you wish to keep; feel free to cut anything off for a keepsake. You can also remove the tulle underneath so that you can save on shipping, as the tulle is very bulky and is no longer used. Nothing from the dress can be returned to you.
-Remove dress from the hanger and/or preservation box.
-If you want to save space in your package, you can remove the underskirt and/or any tulle that is with the dress--simply cut it out with scissors. I cannot use any of the tulle/underskirt of the dress.
-Place it in the SMALLEST BOX/package possible to
save yourself shipping cost.
-It is perfectly fine if it gets wrinkled during shipment.
-If you would like to receive a tax donation receipt from the hospital,
please include your return mailing address with your donated dress.
***Please note that at this time no hospitals are accepting donations during the COVID-19 pandemic, so it could be next tax year before I can get a receipt from them.***

Please note that I do not charge for my services and I pay for all expenses of making and delivering gowns to the hospital. If you would like to show your appreciation and help me give back, please donate directly to St. Jude Children's Hospital via my fundraising link here:
(You will receive a receipt directly from St. Jude if you donate to them)
As of July, I've raised $2,445 of my $3,500 goal for 2021.
Thank you for helping me give back!
