Dear Family and Friends,
We have been fortunate to benefit in love and life. The greatest gifts we can receive are your continued friendship and your presence at our wedding.
However, many of you have been overly kind and asked about our gift registry. In lieu of a registry, we are commemorating our wedding day with a donation to any of the two charities that work on social issues close to our hearts.
1) Best Friends Society (Animal Rescue): Many of you know Rambeau and Pinot and the joy and love they bring into our lives each day. Both of them were rescued by no-kill shelters and found us after many months in a shelter. We want to continue supporting organizations that encourage and teach shelters how to become a no-kill shelter and Best Friends Society is one of the leaders in this movement. Roughly 10,000 animals are killed each day in a US shelter as they can only be kept for 5-10 days before euthanization. Saving even one life can bring years of love and joy to others, as Rambeau and Pinot have proven each day.
2) Human Rights Campaign (LGBT Equal Rights Supporter): Basic equal rights in the workplace and the community are core tenants of what HRC fights for each day. Not lost upon us, is that HRC has been campaigning very hard for marriage equality in the US. After planning this special day and deep discussions with our lawyer to create the protection for ourselves that are automatically conveyed to married couples -- we truly understand the value of equal legal, financial and medical rights for all committed couples.
