The Sisterhood Needs You!

We interrupt this APW lovefest to bring you some news for you to assist in or pass on.

We’ve heard from reader Theodora and several other readers that a bridal shop burned down in a Chicago suburb on Wednesday. Not only is that devastating to the owners, it’s bad for all those wonderful brides who thought, in the midst of their wedding planning anxiety, “Well, at least I have my dress.”

A local radio station, WGN Radio, is putting out a call to women who are willing to donate or loan their dresses out to these brides in need.

Please check out the story here and then go to WGN’s Facebook page to post about your dress.

We don’t have any more info than what we’ve listed here, so please check out the links and follow the instructions or contact the appropriate people if you have any questions. If you are willing and able to donate or loan your dress, please do! Consider it The Sisterhood of the Traveling Dress: Community Edition.

And feel free to pass on APW’s info. Those poor girls might need a little sanity right now.

We return to our regularly scheduled hugs, kisses and sunshine.
