DENVER – Colorado women are donating their wedding dresses for a heartbreaking transformation.

Known as “angel gowns,” the dresses are being transformed into burial gowns for newborns who don’t make it home from the hospital.

It may sound like a morbid task, but turning wedding dresses into tiny gowns fills a need in the community -- a need no one talks about.

The organization that started the program, Angles Above Baby Gowns, has a Colorado chapter. Find out how you can donate a dress or volunteer your service by visiting their Facebook page. You can also email for more information. 

Denver7 spoke to a Colorado woman who decided to donate her dress and turn it into one of these heartbreakingly beautiful creations.
