Mrs. Abejero, who got married last December 30, 2009, put up a blog page, where she placed the information and photos about her bridal gown. It is an ivory white silk satin wedding gown with elegant pearl beadworks. The wedding gown is ideal for brides 5 feet to 5'4" in height, with body statistics 33-26-34.

She understands that it is unusual for someone to sell her own bridal gown or for someone to buy a second hand bridal gown but it is for a good cause. She also shared that the winning bidder or buyer will receive "something new" from her.

Though important to her, Mrs. Abejero, who is now based in Australia, said After all, the memories with my wedding dress will never fade and it's more important to share good memories to others through significant things that we have like my bridal gown.

The proceeds will be for the benefit of the children from Gawad Kalinga Asuncion and Sunshine Village in Las Pinas City.
