What better way to commemorate the celebration of your wedding day than with a donation to your favorite charity. The I Do Foundation was created in 2002 by a group of nonprofit leaders dedicated to developing new avenues of support for charitable organizations. A public foundation based in Washington, D.C., the I Do Foundation works closely with some of the most effective and renowned nonprofit organizations in the country. Together with their corporate and nonprofit partners, the I Do Foundation links engaged couples with a host of charitable giving options at their wedding. The I Do Foundation's innovative charitable giving programs have been featured in:
This foundation offers several options for creatively donating to your selected charity. One of my personal favorite ideas is making a donation in lieu of wedding favors at your reception. You might simply create a beautiful candy station for guests to enjoy with a sign letting your guests know which charity you've chosen to give to. There's also the option of creating gift registries with particular companies who'll donate a portion of the value of your gift. Be sure to check out the I Do Foundation Website for an idea that will work best for you.
