- Wedding: May 2010
I attended a lecture tonight for extra credit in a class, and walked away frustrated.
The visiting professor is a scholar of the labor movement, as well as the civil rights and women’s movements, and spent a good bit of time discussing the frustrating inequality of the distribution of wealth in the world…
While he leaned socialist, I found myself thinking about my wedding. It’s not a huge affair; we’re budgeting about five thousand dollars total, but I realized how many children that could sponsor, how much good five thousand dollars would do, and I feel unsettled about it.
I’m wondering if anyone has ideas as to how one could incorporate ways of giving back to the community and such in a wedding? I’m considering asking my fiance to think about making a donation to WorldVision, or another such organization, in lieu of favors, but I don’t know how he’ll feel about it. Does anybody have other ideas?
