Wedding planning is a crazy season, and for those of you getting married this summer, these next few months will be ones of busy preparation. Something that is becoming increasingly common is for the bride and groom to make a charitable donation on behalf of their guests instead of sending them home with a wedding favour. On our wedding day, Jay and I decided to give the gift of water through Rwanda Clean Water and placed a bookmark shaped card in everyone’s water glass with some details.
We recently had the honour of speaking at a spa and awareness event put together by Trade Sensation, an event planning company based out of Toronto. They suggested we make “in lieu of wedding favours” available through Hope for the Sold. Here’s what I came up with:
If you would like to make a donation to Hope for the Sold in lieu of wedding favours, you can select which style of card you’d like to give your guests. Once I have your information, I will then customize it with your names, wedding date, and picture, and send you the PDF file that you can get printed for those attending your wedding.
All the money from the donations will be going toward this project. All donations will receive a charitable tax receipt (this is possible for U.S. donations as well). You can find out how to give online or by cheque on the bottom of this page. If you are interested in donating in lieu of wedding favours, please contact me here, with subject line “wedding favours” so we can get the ball rolling!
