A Kansas City Couple Recycles Old Wedding Gowns To Make "Angel Gowns" For Greiving Parents
Seeing an 81-year-old man searching for wedding dresses at a yard sale is definitely not something you'd expect. It may even seem a little weird, until you find out what's really going on. John Wright regularly picks through the garage and yard sales in and around Kansas City looking for wedding dresses. When he find some, his wife Diane goes to work cutting them up into smaller gowns that the Wrights donate to grieving parents who have lost a baby. They call them "Angel Gowns."
Diane explains that she knows the pain of losing an infant too closely - she had a miscarriage of her own in her younger days and the grief has never completely left her mind. The angel gowns give the families a chance to have a custom gown for final photos and burial services. It's a way to alleviate the stress of having to buy the burial gown for your child. If you'd like to get involved in the project and donate your wedding dress to a great cause, watch the end of the video for more information.
