The sentiment is really nice, but your explanation is awfully long; I can see people skimming it and asking themselves, “where’s the link to the registry?”. 

I think you could cut out/condense the three center paragraphs and just say that those charities fund research that is important to you and your FI.  To be honest I’d leave off the Amazon registry; if people don’t want to give to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society or Center for Celiac Research they will ask you about it.

We feel that the greatest gift you can give us is your presence. Memories are the greatest gift life has to offer since they truly last a life time. We also feel this is a once in a life time chance to get both of our families and all of our friends together.

If you feel compelled to give a gift, please consider making a donation at charity A or charity B, as these two issues are extremely important to us.

I would also probably put in something else about or any other charity that you think is worthy.

Charities are very personal and even one like cancer society have people who are very opposed to them.    Many people like to really vet the charities they choose to support and may not be in favour of those two.
