“The idea came to me while I was trying out a new meditation app called Chopra.” Karen says of coming up with the giveaway, “I started thinking of what a year 2020 had been and all the stressful journeys people have been on. Then I remembered some brides from over the years who I, upon hearing their stories, was amazed at what they had been through just to get to the alter. These women have been very impressionable to me and I have never forgotten their stories. This has always compelled me to want to help those in need more.
“However, after this particularly challenging era of our history as a community, it seemed obvious to me that I wanted to try and bring a little bit of light into someone’s life, and donate a gown to a bride when it would make a big difference to her. So, this is the start of hopefully a long journey of being able to help many brides in need.”
