@ivyblue88220:  I think it’s really sweet and not tacky at all.

How could giving to others less fortunate be tacky?!  You are very sweet to want to do something like that.

Not at all.  It’s so hard to put things on a registry when you own a home, so I think charity is a great idea.

I don’t think it’s tacky, but I do think it’s a little strange and the execution would be hard.  Traditionally when I see charitable donations, it’s the couple doing them in lieu of favors, not requesting that the guests bring food.

I think this is fine, especially since the biggest problem people usually have is that they don’t appreciate the same charities as the couples do, but a food drive or toys for tots is pretty universal

AWESOME Idea, very selfless. Celebrities actually do this a lot.

This is a great idea and I love it. I’ve seen registries where people ask for donations to their favorite charity that they’re actively involved in rather than asking for gifts. It’s a lovely gesture.

Are you going to have them bring it to the wedding? Just wondering what are the logistics involved (if your BP/DOC will have to haul it somewhere post-wedding).

I do not understand how this would be considered tacky.

You could always donate the gifts you do get to charity? Household goods are always needed. Around here there are charities that give to people leaving shelters and setting up new homes. They may not need a new blender, but dishes, towels, etc.
