In your pre-wedding world, you probably already have the dishes, the towels, and the ubiquitous crock pot that grace most wedding registries. So what do you register for if your cupboards already runneth over? You could succumb to that borderline tacky (okay, really tacky) trend of asking guests to pay for your honeymoon or even help fund your wedding. Or you could help make the world a better place by registering for your wedding at ChangingThePresent.org.
At ChangingThePresent.org, couples can register for “items” like adopting a jaguar ($35), replenishing a rainforest ($50), or funding a year of school for a young girl ($250). Choose from thousands of items from a wide variety of charities to promote global health, environmental causes, animal welfare…whatever you two lovebirds are passionate about (besides each other).
Your wedding was already destined to be the happiest day of your life. But a wedding that can improve the lives of others? Now that’s a celebration of love that will stay with you and your guests long after that last bottle of wine runs dry.
