EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2014
While dinnerware and rice cookers are great, we feel best when we're giving back to the projects nearest to our hearts, we hope you agree and can help us raise money for these important charities.
Human Rights Campaign: We have long been supporters of equality for everyone, and the gay community could really use our help getting their equal rights. There's no better time than this joyous occasion of us getting to marry the person we can't live without to think about those who don't have this choice. If you support our marriage, we urge you to donate to the HRC and support marriage for everyone.
PETA: Anyone who knows me knows my love for animals, and my commitment to improving their lives. My heart breaks every time I hear a new story of the suffering that so many endure throughout their entire lives. I have even gone vegan to do my part (and with my pizza obsession this wasn't easy). PETA never stops working to help the all too many animals that need it. In honor of the animals I love, especially Nala and Furious, and in memory of CoCo, I urge you to donate to PETA.
350.org: Conservation and Environmental Protection are central in the way both Cone and I choose to live our lives. Navigating the solutions to the problems caused by overpopulation, unsustainable energy practices, the food industry, etc. can be really difficult. Bill McKibben started 350.org as a refreshing, grassroots campaign aimed at lowering the carbon in our atmostphere in an attempt to forestall climate change. We love the woods, we love mountains, we love rivers, we love beaches. We want to make sure those things are as beauiful hundreds of years from now as they are now (and hopefully closer to how they were hundreds of years before!).
