Tutu Program

Illness & Disability

The Tutu Program is designed to utilize salvaged tulle from the Angel Gown Program to make tutu skirts for gifting to children suffering from a long term illness or undergoing ongoing medical procedures or tests, or children with special needs to brighten their day.

After deconstructing donated wedding dresses we often have lots of soft tulle which is not suitable for Angel Gown garments but is perfect for various styles of tutu skirts. Our tutu makers then add extra fun with bright coloured ribbons, extra tulle and age appropriate decorations. The finished tutus are packaged in bright gift bags and gifted to hospitals, respite care homes and directly to children with a long term illness or with special needs. We aim to show these children and their families that we care about them and understand their sometimes heartbreaking challenges. We hope to provide a distraction and escape, bring a smile to their faces and add some sunshine to their lives even for a short time.
