Gracie's Gowns is a non-profit organization that makes hospital gowns for children who are chronically ill or diagnosed with life-threatening conditions. Each gown is personalized and tailored to the child's interests, but also has their name embroidered on it as well.

Gowns are requested by close friends and family members of each child and a gown is made in their size free of charge to the families. Preemie gowns are also donated to NICUs and other intensive care units that work with smaller infants, once again at no charge to the facility. These gowns are usually made from remaining pieces of other gowns ~ no fabric goes to waste!

Gracie's Gowns even makes stuffed animal frogs called Freckles for the siblings of children receiving a gown. These are made with a piece of the fabric used for the child's gown and other coordinating fabrics or a fabric that matches what the sibling likes or is interested in.

Gracie's Gowns was started in March of 2012 and became an official organization in the Commonwealth of Virginia February of 2013. Gracie's Gowns is trying to file for the federal public charity status with the IRS to be a 501c3 charity. The application is complete, supporting documents are being added the only thing missing is the filing fee to submit their application.

Gracie's Gowns will also need a trademark and copyright on the brand-new and soon to be released gown design they have been working on for about 6 months now. This will incur additional fees, but will also allow Gracie's Gowns to provide a better gown that is more functional to all children regardless of their diagnosis.

Right now gowns are made for preemies through teens! This include 6 different gown sizes, the new design will allow for more fitting gowns for the children that are in between the three larger sizes.

Having a homemade, personalized hospital gown when going through treatments, therapies and many hospital stays gives each child a since of uniqueness, something special that is theirs in a situation they cannot control and even more, just a smile to get through the next cloudy moment. It helps them realize that there are people in the world who truly care about them, for who they are and not what they are diagnosed with.
