To commemorate our wedding, we have highlighted organizations we currently support in hopes of accelerating their efforts.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian organization that provides aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters in more than 60 countries. MSF received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI is the nation's leading voice on mental health. It is an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society exists because there are people with MS. Their vision is a world free of MS. Your gift will help fund cutting-edge research, drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education, and provide programs and services to help people with MS move their lives forward.
The NRDC works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. They believe the world’s children should inherit a planet that will sustain them as it has sustained us. NRDC works to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water and the wild, and to prevent special interests from undermining public interests. NRDC experts use data and science to unearth the root causes of the problems that confront us. They use that information to blueprint transformative solutions, and they mobilize the support of partners, members, and activists to advocate for laws and policies that will protect our environment far into the future.
Planned Parenthood is one of the nation’s leading providers of high-quality, affordable health care, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education. They offer compassionate care, backed by medical experts and more than 100 years of research in reproductive health. Your gift will help protect access to health care like birth control, cancer screenings, and STD testing and treatment.
