THE STORY:

Hello!

Welcome to our charity wedding registry. As all of our friends and family come together to celebrate our big day, we would like to use this opportunity to make a positive impact and help our community.

Last year we got the opportunity to volunteer with the GiveLight Foundation and teach kids over Skype.

This was no ordinary Skype conversation because these kids are in Aceh - a small region in Sumatra, Indonesia that is till date trying to recover from the 2004 tsunami. We believe Education is the key to building successful individuals and feel immensely proud to have contributed to helping these kids take one step closer to their successful careers and lives.

GiveLight Foundation is an organization building homes for orphaned children in afflicted areas across the globe. They also strive to provide quality education for these children. Having volunteered with this organization over the past year we have seen the amazing impact it is making in the lives of young children all over the world. We hope our marriage has a positive impact on our family, friends, and the community around us, and we can think of nothing better than sharing our gifts with GiveLight Foundation.


About GiveLight Foundation

Our mission at GiveLight Foundation is to build and sustain beautiful homes and provide our orphaned children with long term, high quality education. We strive to recreate a loving family, a sense of belonging and strong identity/self-esteem. Our first home in Aceh, Indonesia established in 2005, is a success story where the kids are growing up happy and thriving. We are scaling that model globally and now supporting more than 800 children in 11 countries. We plan to increase our orphan sponsorship to 1,000 in 2017 and to 10,000 by 2025. Check out GiveLight Foundation Facebook page for more amazing stories!
