Donate to Charity Through Your Zankyou Wedding Registry

Zankyou wedding gift registries are defined by the concepts of freedom and flexibility. This means that we’re happy for you to put whatever you want on your list, from your honeymoon to a new sofa. But there is one type of gift that more and more couples are putting on their list: a donation to their favorite charity.

Whether as a direct donation or by requesting gifts from a charity’s own line of goods, you can include money for a good cause as part of your registry.

If you would like to make a donation, just add it to your wedding registry in the “Create your own gift” section of your wedding registry profile. You can add free text and photos, explaining your intentions.

You can also use the same tool to redirect your guests to a range of different charities’ wedding gift registries, or send a message to your guests via your web forum.

Here are a few NGOs that have their own wedding donation programs or offer their own gifts that are easy as pie to include on your list:

  • ASPCA Ambassadors – great for animal-loving brides & grooms
  • Unicef Wedding Favors – help children around the world to live healthier, happier and safer lives
  • Brides Against Breast Cancer’s Pink Envelope Program – perfect if someone you know has been affected by breast cancer
  • The Arbor Day Foundation – your guests can help plant trees across the country

Of course with Zankyou, you can link your registry to any charity you like, from large national organizations like the Red Cross to your local soup kitchen or animal shelter.
