San Francisco-As more couples plan socially conscious weddings and embrace meaningful traditions to personalize their special day, I Do Foundation is making it easier to Celebrate GenerouslyTM with charity.
With I Do, a couple’s wedding can raise money for charity-any charity they select. It’s the ultimate way to share their love with the world! It gives them the chance to express their values and support their special interests with wedding choices. From gift registries with leading national stores that donate up to 10% of purchases to charitable favors and wedding party gifts to jewelry and accessory purchases that support a favorite cause, I Do provides no-cost tools for creating a wedding that reflects everything the engaged couple believes in.
A recently redesigned I Do Foundation site offers couples more convenience, more unique charitable choices, and more ways to have a great green wedding, with:
- A wealth of eco-chic wedding Tips & Ideas for going green without sacrificing style
- A powerful, easy-to-search GuideStar® database of more than 1.5 million charities for selecting the specific charities they wish to benefit
- A new, memorable way to thank members of their wedding party, family, special friends or officiant with a GiveNow charity gift card
- Meaningful and nontraditional charitable favors that make a lasting impact
By joining forces late last year, I Do and JustGive became the unparalleled leader in charitable weddings, offering couples the most ways to give back and the largest selection of charities from which to choose. “We’re pleased to launch this new I Do site and help couples make their special day mean even more-conveniently offering all the ways they can support causes that matter most to them,” comments JustGive Founder Kendall Webb.
The destination for online charitable giving® and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, JustGive was founded by Webb in 2000 and was one of the first nonprofits to harness the power of the Web for charitable giving. JustGive has raised more than $125 million in donations for more than 60,000 charities in the past decade. I Do Foundation, a national pioneer and recognized leader in wedding occasion giving, has worked with nearly 50,000 couples a year and granted more than $6 million to charity in seven years.
Together, JustGive and I Do are committed to creating new channels of giving and developing innovative ways to make charity part of every life event.
