Charitable donations for your wedding gift registry
As you all know, the 1st of December is World AIDS Day. Why this date? Because December 1, 1981 was the day the first AIDS case was diagnosed. Given that it’s a special day, with a special cause, we thought we’d talk to you about presents for your gift registry that will help different NGOs and charities.
As you know, thanks to its freedom and flexibility, you can include anything in your Zankyou wedding gift registry. We’ve already suggested charitable donations, green gifts for your registry and the honeymoon. So here are some more ideas of gifts that you can include in your list that will contribute to improving the lives of those in need.
For those of you with children, what about an Art for Baby set from the NSPCC? A box-set of images that will stimulate your child’s literacy skills will also help children who receive help by the UK’s leading children’s charity. 50% of the cost of the set will be contributed to the NSPCC if you buy them directly from the site – those interested should contact Artforbaby@nspcc.org.uk
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for things for your home, why not include products by San Francisco-based Branch, which combines great design with fair trade products. The eco-chic Veneerware set of plates are just one of the things that caught our eye. Or if you’d like to shop closer to home, what about the products from UK-based sustainable lifestyle company ?
And if we’re talking about fighting AIDS today, then there’s no better place to look for gifts than the (RED) shop, which continues to use the power of brand to fight one of the world’s most debilitating diseases. From Converse 1Hund(RED) trainers to apple-red iPods, this is another great place to share the good fortune of your wedding.
