I don’t think it’s cheap at all! It is best to provide every guest with some info on what charity it is for and why! 🙂 We are also doing charity favours but we have chosen to buy the bands that are supplied in the shop so that our guests are getting something to remind them of what they got and to have something tangible but you are giving sweets as well 🙂 sounds like you have all your bases covered to me.

 

ps they look very pretty 🙂

I think you may not be getting many replies because this has been discussed to death lately. If you click on any of the related links I’m sure you can read a long heated debate. 

I think you did a good job with the paper. But yeah, I’m not such a fan. It seems kinda holier than thou sometimes/attention grabby, and that charity can easily be made without announcing it to everybody  And it’s not much of a sacrifice to take something away from guests. It’s not like you’re saying “in lieu of the 2 carat ring I was going to get we donated to charity” it’s more like “we got all this stuff for ourselves, but YOU don’t need a favour”. That said, I rarely even take the favour so I wouldn’t actually miss it either. I would just skip the favour all together and quietly make a donation to the charity of your choice without announcing it.

I like it.  I think you picked a charity that is fairly universal (it’s not like, Planned Parenthood which causes a lot of polarization), and if it’s important to you and your family and friends know how important it is to you, it’s sweet.  I don’t think that any guest is going to leave thinking it was “holier than thou,” honestly.
