It was brought to my attention this fabulous organization, Brides Against Breast Cancer! Thanks to Mark Eric, a gifted photographer who runs TrashtheDress.com, is partnering with this wonderful cause.
Here’s the nitty gritty. You get married and instead of putting that dress up in a secret vault for someone in your family to wear (like your daughter would ever wear what you wore), you donate the dress to Brides Against Breast Cancer. The dresses are sold in fund raising sales and the proceeds of the sale go to fulfill a wish of a terminal BC patient. And quite frankly, in some cases, creating memories that other family members will have to carry on for her.
I have my wedding dress. I tried to sell it 11 years ago. It’s in my closet, just hangin there. My only son, doesn’t want to wear it. Go figure. So guess where it is going next week? You betcha…..to a bride who hopefully will enjoy it. I wish her and the organization well. Please take a moment to check it out.
