We are donating to the American Diabetes Association.  My mother, sister’s boyfriend, two of FI’s uncles and a few other friends and family member suffer from both Type I and II so we felt it was a good cause.

we did! FH chose St. Judes Childrens hospital (its his go-to charity)

and i chose National Alopecia Areata Foundation (naaf) – i suffer from Alopecia, and i thought it was a great way to show awareness for it.

we had moo mini cards made up as favor cards with our e-pics on one side and our charity info on the other.

  • Wedding: December 2010

We aren’t donating in lieu of favors, but we are encouraging donations in lieu of gifts.

We are older and have everything we need, so we only registered for a honeymoon fund. But our primary request is that people donate in our names to one of two non-profits:

  • American Heart Association – in memory of my father, who died of a heart attack at age 42 (when I was 16)
  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure – in memory of the groom’s aunt, who passed away this past July after a 15-year fight against breast cancer

In both cases, we set up donation pages on the organizations’ websites, and then placed links on our wedding website.

We donated in lieu of favors to the American Brain Tumor Association in honor of my father who passed away when I was 13 of a brain tumor. It was a nice way to remember him and lots of people said they found it touching.

We are donating to the local Humane Society, where we adopted our pets. They do a lot of good work in our community.

We donated to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto because my grandmother wasn’t able to make it to the wedding due to her illness. They gave us little packets of Forget-Me-Not seeds with our wedding info and info about the Alzheimer Society on it which was very nice of them. I also ended up making homemade caramel for everyone because I can’t resist homemade caramel 😉

We want to donate to the hospital where his father passed away. My mom thinks its a horrible idea and that there should be “real” favours. I really dont care what my mom thinks at this point… I hate favours and most of the people I know throw them out. So I’m so for a cookie and a donation!
