The Event of Awesomeness

aka Alex & Jeremy’s wedding/party

Approved! 26 September 2008

Filed under: Registry — Palila @ 10:47

Before we really started thinking about where we might be registering, we thought about what charity we’d like to support with our registry. Though the I Do Foundation, you can select from their already-approved charities or nominate the charity of your choice to recieve a percentage (3-10%, depending on the store) of the monies spent on your registry (from their partner stores, which include Target, REI, JC Penney, and cooking.com.) They’re also partnered with WeddingChannel.com, which gives up to 3% to the charity you select from the WeddingChannel.com pre-made list.

For the I Do Foundation-partnered stores, we discussed several charities and decided to have two – Dawson County Humane Society and Terre Haute Humane Society. Angus came from Dawson County and they just built a shelter/clinic, instead of operating out of other vet’s clinics. In Terre Haute, Jeremy’s landlord worked with THHS, and often brought home larger dogs to foster. Both could use a little help.

Unfortunately, neither was already on the I Do Foundation’s list, so we submitted them for approval. Today, we got the email that they’ve both been approved! We’re very happy that we get to support these!

    Wonderful idea. I’m sure Angus would appreciate you guys helping out his cousins.

    That’s awesome! I wish I had known about that for our wedding because every year for my birthday and Christmas I ask for donations to the Asheville Humane Society
