That’s a wonderful idea, and it’s great that you two have a personal connection to the charity.

I like the idea of donating to a charity that means something to you and your family.  I think your guests will appreciate it.

rol769, I’m doing the same thing at our Oct wedding, next year. My brother passed away 2 years ago, he was diagnosed at 11 with juvenile diabetes. I contacted JDRF and they are going to print the cards that we will be placing on the tables at the reception.

Here is an example of our cards, there needs to be editing (i.e. the date is wrong, and the wording is going to incorporate my brothers name as well)

We also considered something like that, but my entire family booted the idea. I still really love it. It’s spending the money that you would’ve spent on cheesy favors for something where others will benefit. I think it’s selfless and caring. Go for it! People who will benefit from this gift will thank you in the long run and I’d feel much better about that than giving money toward pictures of us or something with our name on it that guests would not appreciate and throw away after a couple of days anyway.

 Best of luck!

I like this idea too. FI’s cousin donated to the Cardio ward at the nearest Children’s Hospital. It was a very nice sentiment, and we didn’t walk away with a knick knack we didn’t need.

We’re doing this as well.  I know we’ll be giving to http://www.kiva.org and then we might given to the National MS Foundation.  It depends on how much we decide on!

I went to a wedding that did not favors but donated to a charity.  I loved it!!  I really felt good when I read the card on the table. 

Great idea!!
