Woman's Wedding Dress Accidentally Donated To Goodwill



One Woman Donated Her Wedding Dress to Be Made Into Burial Gowns for Stillborn Babies

Like many women, chances are your wedding dress is collecting dust in the back corner of your closet, never to be worn again. But because of the memories associated with that white gown, it's almost impossible to fathom giving it up. One woman from Edinburgh just might change your mind, though.

Yvonne Trimble, knowing she'd never twirl around in her wedding dress ever again, decided to donate it to Cherished Gowns for Angel Babies, a charity that transforms wedding dresses into tiny burial gowns for stillborn babies or for those who pass away shortly after birth.

Once the charity was finished transforming Trimble's old wedding dress, it sent her a few pictures of the final product—seven little dresses adorned with bits of embroidery. Overwhelmed with the results, Trimble posted a moving message on Facebook to praise the charity for their good work. 

Part of it read:

"Yesterday they sent me pictures of what they had made with my dress and a mix of emotions swept over me when I received them; pride that I'd done something good, sadness that it's necessary for these gowns to have to be made, relief that I've never known this heartbreak, and a sense of thankfulness that volunteers around the country give up their time to produce such comforting garments."

She went on to spread awareness about the organization by saying:

"I post these pictures not to shout my worth, but to advertise the charity that does this wonderful work; they need volunteers to knit, sew, crochet and they need donations of all manner of stuff, not just dresses, so if you care to look at their website it may be that more little souls will be helped."

Unexpectedly, her post began to rack up a massive amount of shares (almost 100,000 now). Trimble received thousands of friend requests, along with heartbreaking messages from parents suffering from the loss of a child. 

One message read, "So from the bottom of my heart thank you for giving us mums some relief in the knowledge that our angel babies are forever wrapped in love."

And it wasn't just Trimble who gained widespread attention. Megan McKay, co-founder of Cherished Gowns, told Mashable that there was a huge reaction to her Facebook post, even though the charity always sends pictures to those who donate their dresses. 

"We regularly send out photos to people to show them how we used their dress, so to see this post go viral was quite overwhelming," McKay said.
