The transformation of a dress

A few months back we introduced you to Caylee Couture, a new project for Danya's Gift named after a little angel who fought hard her whole, but short life.  I met Caylee's Momma while doing some volunteering at the hospital. She has become one of our board members and when it came time to name this project Caylee was the right choice. When a dress is donated I have promised to take a photo of the dress, and then all that it becomes. These photos will always be shared on our Facebook page. Often it seems like there should be more outfits made out of a gown, but remember that sue to seams and decoration some times parts of the dress end up to small to make a full piece. This means that I save these parts and use them to accessorize or piece together an outfit from the parts of other dresses.

It is fitting then that I share with you Caylee's Grandma's gown's transformation here.
 This gown turned into a wrap gown for a preemie
 And 3 full term-3 month old outfits.


Gowns are always needed. We are planning a drop off at the end of June, so please consider helping us out.

It's Official!

I am pleased to announce that Danya's Gift is officially a 501c3 Federally recognized Community Charity! Now it's time to seek out some grants and really see what we can do! So excited!

Aloha!

Spring is right around the corner. New years resolutions have come and gone. Sigh, days fly past way to fast some day. Thanks to Facebook I know that 5 years ago we just made one of our bigger donations, 3 years ago we were bringing back donations from our trip to Minnesota, and here we are in 2016 getting ready to not only roll out a new project in earnest, but also letting our community know we exist and in a few short months we will be an official 501c3 if the feds work quickly.

IF you have never heard of Danya's gift take a minute to browse through the pages listed accross the top of the page. You will see a brief description of each of the projects we do and what we need to do them, as well as why we do what we do.

As always you are our greatest resource. If you are reading this it means you care enough to help. We've also added a donation button to our website all cash donations will go towards these projects.
