In the wake of the tragedy in Japan and with natural disasters striking more regularly, engaged couples and their wedding guests have the opportunity to make a difference by donating to charity. Nonprofit organizations, such as JustGive and the I Do Foundation (now partners), offer charity registries in lieu of wedding gifts or favors. Similar to a gift registry, couples create a charity registry for direct donations to the cause of their choice. Guests can access the registry through the couple’s wedding website and will pay a nominal fee for credit card processing.
Brides and grooms have additional options that support the cause important to them, including a charitable gift registry, charitable wedding favors or by purchasing select wedding accessories that contribute a portion to charity. And if you still need a blender or coffee pot, many top retailers have partnered with the I Do Foundation and will donate a portion of gift sales to your favorite charity.
Advantage Bridal offers breast cancer awareness t-shirts, apparel and accessories; many of which support FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered). Advantage Bridal donates a portion of breast cancer awareness product sales to FORCE and other nonprofits that support women diagnosed or recovering from breast cancer. We can all do our part, no matter how small it may seem. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the nation of Japan and its citizens during this devastating time. Charity registries are the perfect way to support a cause close to you.
