When you hear the word “gown”, one might be compelled to shout “JOVANI!” in a room full of people. However, while Brave Gowns definitely deserves a shout out, you will not find them at New York Fashion Week. Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Margaret Josephs is on a mission to make the lives of sick children a tad more bearable. After staying on a pediatric oncology floor for a medical procedure, Margaret was moved to create hero-inspired hospital gowns for kids.
During the last episode, we saw the result of her hard work with an epic fundraiser. The food was amazing, people got along (for once), but most importantly we heard from children who would wear Brave Gowns. I have to say, there wasn’t a dry eye in the venue or on my couch. What is the status of this project? Recently. Margaret shared some updates with her fans.
In an interview with Page Six, Margaret shared, “They’re a little expensive right now. They are in some hospitals. So we are working overseas to get them made less expensively. So hopefully in the spring they’ll be a lot less expensive.”
She went on to add that people are buying the gowns and donating them to various hospitals. Margaret said, “That’s what we’ve been doing right now to hospitals because they are expensive because they’re made in the States.”

In the interim, gifts and donations are always accepted to get gowns to the patients. For more information on this worthwhile cause, you can visit Margaret’s website.
Anything that can make a child’s stay in the hospital a little brighter is great. I am a grown adult and in the event of a hospital stay, looking like a unicorn would make it the tiniest bit easier. With kids every little bit counts, much respect and success to Marge for doing notable work.
