We’re not doing charity favors but are doing charity wedding gifts instead (giving our guests a list of our favorites with the invitation and giving them to option to chose one, or pick one of their own).

We decided to stick to local branches of charities in the city where we live. We also picked ones which had significance to us – ones we have used the services of (YMCA), medical research ones for relatives that had different diseases (cancer, diabetes), plus other places that we have volunteered (local food bank). I like the idea of picking local charities to keep the money within our community.

I’m also interested to see what other people are choosing as we definitly missed a few good ones that we can still add to our list 🙂

My friend made hers to pancreatic cancer research and another did breast cancer research.  Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease, usually discovered too late, and the mortality rates within the first year are very high.

I am thinking of making ours to 2 different charities. As you can tell, one of them will be pancreatic cancer institution 🙂 I’d love to hear where people donate.

 Of course, pick something meaningful to the both of you…any charity will be appreciated by your guests.
