I just wanted to take a moment to thank you my faithful readers for…well, being faithful to me. I love receiving your emails, meeting you in person, hearing your comments and helping to make your wedding dreams come true. This holiday season I’m especially thankful to two organizations that are dedicated to giving back and making the world a better place. So as you’re sitting around your thanksgiving table tomorrow, be grateful for your good health, the love of your family and organizations that are making it easy for you, to help others. I’m sure they will be thankful for you as well.
Envisioned a world where charitable giving was a more integral part of many life events.
Two online philanthropic leaders—the I Do Foundation and JustGive.org, the destination for online charitable giving™—have joined forces to better serve the charitable wedding sector.
Recognized by Time Magazine as one of the 50 Best Websites, the I Do Foundation was created to help engaged couples celebrate generously and raise money for the charity of their choice through direct donations, wedding favors and charitable gift registries with major retail partners. Working with nearly 50,000 couples a year, the I Do Foundation has granted more than $6 million to charity in the past seven years.
As a couple you will enjoy a wider variety of ways making your charity and giving experience better. This new merger creates access to over 1.5 million charities worldwide. What a better way to show how ‘thankful’ you are especially this holiday season. Go to the ‘I Do foundation’ and create your registry today. http://www.idofoundation.org/
I love a good give-a-way as much as most, and if you are looking for sweets look no further than Divine Chocolate, the farmer-owned fair trade chocolate brand. By purchasing this as your wedding take-a-way, you will be helping to build schools, sinking wells for clean drinking water to villages, providing mobile medical clinics for farmers in remote growing regions, and fostering women’s income generation projects to help women earn additional income for their families when the cocoa season is over. A perfect way to show your love and commitment to a better life for others long after your wedding day. They have a great site, so take a moment to read all about the great things they are doing. http://www.www.divinechocolateusa.com
Once again I wish you and yours a very safe, happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
Your bridal fairy godmother,
