- Wedding: February 2010
I’ll try to keep this short and sweet.
I’m currently training for a marathon with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training organization. Essentially what I’m doing is fundraising (I’m looking to raise about $4,000 that goes directly to the society) and traiing for the marathon. This is the second time I’m participating with TNT, so I sent out letters out to the same friends, family, and anyone I can think of to donate as I did the last time. I sent these out about a week before I got engaged.
Here’s my conundrum.
Some people are donating much more than I honestly expected to receive. This money is not going directly to me, but towards finding a cure for cancer. My dad thinks that these people (who most definitely are friends of the family) should be invited to the wedding because how how much money their donating. I, on the other hand, see them as donating to TNT, not to me. If they were giving me $100 then I could understand inviting them, but what they choose to donate to is up to them! He’s afraid of lots of hurt feelings when some of these people don’t get an invitation to the wedding even though they’re supporting me in my endevours.
Opinions? Ideas? Thoughts?
