Dear friends and family --
Your presence and well wishes on our wedding day mean more to us than any gift. However, if you're itching to give something, we ask that you contribute to help us raise $5,000 for these two incredible charities!
Project Healthy Children (PHC) works with local governments in impoverished countries to fortify staple foods with micronutrients. PHC is an extremely cost-effective charity where your dollar can go really far. http://projecthealthychildren.org/who-we-are-2/impact-calculator/.
The Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) provides mosquito-nets to prevent malaria, which is an easily-preventable disease that kills more than half a million people per year. AMF is the top-rated charity on GiveWell.org, and the cost of saving the life of one child through AMF is estimated to be $3,500. http://www.givewell.org/charities/against-malaria-foundation.
