With the help of their wedding designer/coordinator, Crystal Lequang, Amy and Kendall set out 3 glass receptacles and a container of attractively colored cardboard tokens. The sign instructed guests to place a token, each worth $1, into the container of their choice and the happy couple would make a donation to the charity chosen by each guest:
1) American Cancer Society
- Both the bride and groom have had people they love suffer through and triumph over cancer. Because of this they felt strongly about including the ACS.
2) Make a Wish Foundation
- Probably one of the best known charities in the country, Make a Wish grants the wishes of children suffering from life threatening conditions.
- "A Palo Alto based company that creates local solutions for a healthy planet."
This is such a thoughtful idea!
(ETA) A bride on Wedding Bee describes her inspiration for the "Sweet Charity" paper token idea and because so many other brides to be wanted to include the tokens at their wedding she created a tutorial showing how to make the tokens. CLICK HERE to view how to make the paper tokens yourself.
