AMOUNT RAISED OFFLINE: $5,200.00
Throughout our relationship, we have been repeatedly reminded how fortunate we are to have such supportive family and friends. We have experienced selfless giving of both time and love and for this we are thankful. In keeping with that spirit, we have selected a few charities that hold special meaning to us and ask that a contribution to one of these causes be made in lieu of any gifts (Tanvi already has too many kitchen gadgets which Srini finds confusing and has difficultly cleaning/knowing where they go). We thank you in advance for helping us meet, and hopefully exceed, our fundraising goal, and would welcome donations to any other charities which may hold special meaning to you.
