Brave Gowns Help Children Fight Illness w/ Superhero Powers!

$37,081

THE GOAL:The goal is to give 2,000 gowns to 2,000 children in the top 12 children’s hospitals plus Shriner's and St Jude, but the more funds raised, the more Brave Gowns we can put directly on children! A donation of $25 puts a gown directly on a child! I will be honored to show up at the hospitals and hand out Brave Gown to children in the fight of their lives. The hospitals suggested doing a raffle to see which children receive a gown. That's when I knew I had to step up and do more. It would be tragic to have to pick and choose which child receives a gown and who doesn’t. The initial $36,000 that would allow Brave Gowns to launch pilot programs on the oncology/hematology floors in Children’s Hospitals throughout the nation. We also have a waiting list of families that have reached out personally. There are currently over 3 million children admitted to hospitals throughout the United States, my long term goal is to make sure their is a Brave Gown waiting for children to make sure that there is a little bit of a bright side while being admitted. This is just the start!

Why Is This So Important? I hadn’t realize that the design of the hospital gown is 150 years old! So now that all these doors are open, the only problem is funding. Realistically, it would take years to go the traditional route with Brave Gowns. Each hospital would have to wait for their linen contracts to run out, which could be up to 20 years. Plus, if they were just used traditionally, the children would have to give their Brave Gowns back. This way the children can pick and chose their favorite design and then wear it their entire treatment! They get to keep them and be part of the hospital fashion show. Let's help them feel BRAVE every day!

I am thrilled to tell you why Brave Gowns are so life changing:  A Brave Gown is a gown that a child/patient will wear when going through a treatment that scares them: a spinal tap, an MRI, an x-ray, a long hospital stay or when they need to feel BRAVE while fighting a terminal illness! We want children in the hospital fighting even the toughest disease, to put forth their best fight and conquer whichever illness they're fighting. Whether a child wants to be strong like a superhero or magical like a princess, while wearing a "Brave Gown" they will believe that can take on any illness!

I am beyond grateful for any and all sponsors. Your support will put a Brave Gown directly on a child in hospital!

Those of us who have children tucked safely in their beds at night are so blessed. I can't wait to deliver the gowns to the hospitals & children!~Summer

Risks and challenges

You're coming in to help support a product after I've already done all the leg work and overcome almost any and all obstacles. Round one was a huge success and I'm so thankful to everyone that has helped along the way! I've been working with a hospital in southern California and a hospital linen company to get past anything that will arise. The hardest part was getting through to the correct people at hospitals and then passing the flammability ratings for the material that is being used. Medical directors, doctors, nurse, children and families are all excited about Brave Gowns and are hoping to make this a reality! I will be having most drop-offs at the hospital filmed, so you can be apart of the happiness that you are helping create!

Together we can make this happen! Please know that this is ran through a 501(c)3. Each backer will receive a write-off for their donation! ~Thank you!
