EVENT DATE: Aug 18, 2013

AMOUNT RAISED OFFLINE: $100.00

THE STORY:

Thanks everyone for coming to our wedding and making it a great day for us!  We're going to leave up the registry for a while longer, hopefully we'll be able to make our goal, we're almost there :).  We love seeing all the names scroll by.

Instead of a getting us a wedding gift, consider spreading the love to one of our favorite charities.  Even more than some really cool placemats, what'd make us happiest is making a difference by giving to causes that we care about.  Thanks so much for supporting us!

 

United Way SB - United for Literacy

The statistics are staggering in Santa Barbara and nationwide, when children fall behind in early school, they stay behind and gap continues to grow as they get older.  Those who don't learn to read by 3rd or 4th grade have incredibly high high school drop out rates, and they in turn have a much higher chance of getting involved in gang activity or being incarcerated.  Help the United Way fight the problem at the source.

 

Polaris Project

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others.  Human trafficking is considered to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world.  It is estimated that 100,000 children are involved in the sex trade each year in the United States alone, and that globally the number of people being exploited by this industry is 20.9 million.

Polaris Project is a leading organization in the global fight against human trafficking and modern-day slavery.  Join Polaris Project in creating long-term solutions that move our society closer to a world without slavery.

 

Santa Barbara Rescue Mission

For a number of reasons, Santa Barbara has a large homeless population.  The Rescue Mission offers daily meals and shelter 365 days a year to meet their immediate needs.  They also run a 12 month, on-site treatment program for both men and women dedicated to helping people break the cycle of dependency and getting graduates off of the streets and into a job.  These programs are faith-based and highly successful, with 57% of graduates remaining dependency-free, five years after graduation.
