EVENT DATE: Jun 10, 2017

THE STORY:

 

Hello our favorite people!

Like many of you, we feel so lucky to have the beautiful families, friends and lives that we do. We could not possibly need any more than the support and love you have shown us. In lieu of gifts, please consider donating to one of these four organizations using the blue donate link to the right. These causes are so special to us - read why below.

Please be sure to mention Claire and Brett's wedding in the tribute option so we can keep track of the donations. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!

1. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

As some of you know, Brett was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2003 at the age of 18. He has lived a very fulfilling life with diabetes while hoping for a cure eventually. JDRF has been at the forefront of the important research and technology that will lead to a cure one day, and we have been honored to participate in some of their events. Help make that day a reality for Brett and so many others, both young and old.

2. The Boys and Girls Club of Baltimore

We met in Baltimore in 2013 (RIP Camden Pub) and have fallen in love with this city and its people over the last 4 years. We are proud to call Baltimore home despite some of the injustices we witness here. BGC has always led the way to find a safe and encouraging place for youth to grow. Please help make an impact on those young lives in our beloved city.

3. The Church Health Center of Memphis, TN

Claire, and many in attendence at the wedding, have spent much of their lives in the Memphis, TN area. Much like Balitmore, it is a wonderful and special city that suffers greatly due to poverty and lack of health care. The Church Health Center provides medical, dental, mental and endless forms of other care to the uninsured and undocumented in Memphis. There are so many people that are healthier, happier and alive because of the CHC and its founder, Dr. Scott Morris. CHC's devotion to the health and service of others inspired Claire in medical school and continues to do so.

4. The Jalen Rose Leadership Academy, Detroit, MI.

Jalen Rose is a personal hero of Brett's and role model to many. We so admire how Jalen has dedicated his life to founding the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy and fighting for important social causes. #standfornothingfallforanything. JRLA is a PUBLIC charter high school that currently serves over 400 ninth through twelfth grade scholars from metro-Detroit, providing a leadership-focused education that engages and inspires youth to achieve at the rigorous level necessary to attend college and ultimately graduate with a college degree. Jalen is not only leading the way to nurture and grow young lives, but also providing Brett with endless podcast entertainment. Please help support the fine young people of Detroit pursuing their dreams thanks to the leadership of our guy, Jalen.
