I’m so sorry to hear about your parents.  FWIW, I think donating to the ACS in honor of your parents is a lovely idea.  I would not be offended in any way.  As far as the cookie – I think that is absolutely enough for a favor!

The only name that will be associated with any donation to a charity is the name of the donor(s). No one lists all their guests names.

Having said that I am in the camp that says a donation is not a favor, it is something you do with your money instead of a favor.

Most favors are a complete waste of money. If you want to honor your parents, by all means use your money wisely and make a donation to the ACS.

Just don’t have a favor. You don’t need to tell your guests you made the donation.

We don’t broadcast or publicize our other charitable donations.

I don’t understand the need that some couples have to tell their guest about their donation, unless they think their guests will think ill of them for not having a favor.

Two of my cousins did donations instead of favors.  There were little notes with the places cards.  I think your idea is very lovely and I think you should do it 🙂

@onyx81:  More and more weddings I attend don’t have a favor. I think more couples are getting comfortable with the idea that unless it is a cultural must, many favors are a complete waste of time and money.
