Unraveling

Unraveling 051216

Greetings, friends! My mind is stuck in poetry mode these days. So, today, I am sharing my poem, Unraveling. It is one of my favorite poignant poems. If you already have a copy of my poetry book, From 14 to 41, it can be found on page 12.

If you haven’t purchased it yet, I am running a special on all of my books. From 14 to 41, in particular, makes a great graduation gift. It has a great deal of inspirational and thought-provoking pieces.

All books ordered from my website will be signed by me, and I can dedicate them to the loved ones of your choice. Don’t delay, order today!

February Dress Drive to Benefit Little Angel Gowns

1506780_516810131793340_4658503798310689677_nLittle Angel Gowns began small, in a house, growing into a blooming nonprofit. In December of 2014, LAG became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

They work with hospital bereavement programs to provide burial gowns and pouches to grieving families. These gowns and pouches are made from wedding gowns, formal dresses and first communion dresses.

They are funded solely by donations and work on a volunteer basis. Each gown is individually wrapped in tissue and presented to families by the medical team caring for their baby.

I recently donated my wedding gown to this wonderful organization. I will be documenting my dress’ journey through the process. I ask that you consider donating your gowns for this worthy cause.

If you do not have a gown to donate, they need supplies and volunteers to organize and sew.

This is the information that is posted on their Facebook page concerning the February Dress Drive:

We have had so many of you ask if you could host a dress drive in your local towns, groups, organizations, church groups, work places, and so forth.

During the month of February we will host a LOVE DRESS DRIVE.

We encourage you to create a dress drive in your area with your friends, family or co-workers. Collect all of the gowns you can and then donate them to our organization by the end of February.

The dresses will need to be dropped off or shipped to our office location: 6075 Lakeside Blvd, Indianapolis, IN 46278

* The dresses do not need to be cleaned.

* You can cut a 4×4 square inch of your gown to keep.

* All gowns must have the ‘donation gown form’ pinned to the gown.
Please print: http://media.wix.com/ugd/e335e5_c14ca46d8e0a41a0a5d1ea82720dcb2f.pdf

If you have any questions regarding the dress drive, feel free to email us or direct message us on FB. Please direct all questions to Jenn as she is coordinating the dress drive.(littleangelgowns@yahoo.com)

February is the month of LOVE and what better way to show your LOVE then by donating your wedding gown.

We provide our complimentary Angel Gowns to families who have lost a baby. We ship gowns anywhere in the USA.

Many Blessings
