  1. Dear Kim,
    I would like to know more about how to donate a wedding dress to the Dorcas Ministry Shop in Haiti. My daughter was married on May 20 and we didn’t know what to do with her wedding dress after the wedding. My daughter and her husband live in a tiny apartment in New York and have no place to store the dress, so it is currently hanging in the spare bedroom at my 84 year old mother’s house. One of my dauhter’s wedding guests, Felicia Alvarez, recently posted one of your articles on her blog and somehow that led me to read your artilce about the Dorcas Ministry Shop in Haiti. My daughter and I are very interested in dontating her dress to this ministry.

    I have many questions about donating a wedding dress to this ministry. Do they accept strapless dresses? It’s a modest dress, but it is strapless. A simple jacket or shawl could be paired with the dress. Should I have the dress cleaned before sending it? How should I pack it? Where should I send the dress to?

    I am not a filmmaker, but I have an idea for a documentary film that follows a wedding dress from the day the bride-to-be purchases her wedding dress to her wedding day and then, after the wedding when the dress is packed and sent to the Dorcas Ministry Shop in Haiti to begin a new life as a rental wedding dress that will make many Haitian Brides happy.
