Matties Memory is an organisation that helps families who have experienced the loss of a child during pregnancy and infancy. We use donated wedding and formal dresses to make burial gowns for these babies gone too soon. We also provide families and hospitals with bereavement support including memory bags that contain items such as hats blankets candles and a small soft toy. We donate to hospitals across the country, and to individual families who request them. We started after the stillbirth of our own son Matthew Aaron.
We are looking for wedding, bridesmaid or prom dresses to be made into burial gowns, small votive or tealight candles, baby hats, baby receiving blankets, soft toys 3inches and under in size.
