- Wedding: June 2011
My FI’s sister passed away about 10 years ago waiting for an organ transplant and we would like to honor her during the wedding by making a donation to the Transplant Foundation in lieu of favors.
My original idea was to have a Vistaprint postcard with one side a picture of us holding hands and wearing our green “Donate Life” bracelets and a note from us on the other side explaining what the foundation is. Here what I have to far. Thoughts? It doesn’t seem long enough to me, but I don’t know whatelse to say.
“In honor of our guests, and in memory of the groom’s sister, HERNAME, we are making a donation to the Transplant Foundation. Since 1987, The Transplant Foundation provides both financial and emotional support to transplant patients.”
Each postcard would be placed at the table and a Donate Life bracelet will be tucked into their napkin.
I also wanted to somehow include green jelly belly’s in with the postcard. JB’s are FI’s fave candy and they aren’t very expensive to buy in bulk and I was only going to give each guest maybe 6 or 10 of them sealed in some kind of small clear plastic bag. BUT, I don’t know if giving them JBs AND a bracelet (which we would get for free because FI’s mom is very involved in organ donor awareness) will be to much. Especially since the whole point of a charity favor is to not spend actual money on a favor, but to instead donate the money you would have spent on the favor to your charity.
Yay or nay to the Jelly Bellys? And if you do think it is a good idea how should I package/present them?
