Giving is good


Right from the start I decided my column and blog would not be about promoting myself or other wedding vendors in the community – although there is much to brag about, as we have a fantastic wedding community here in the Poconos. We are very lucky to have amazing venues, talented photographers and musicians, florists and officiants.

I simply wanted this to be a place to share ideas and reflect on my experiences as a Celebrant in the Poconos.

But today I am going to promote something – GIVING – the idea of giving to causes or charities as an alternative gift. Whether for Valentines Day or for wedding favors, making a donation truly honors the recipient.

These are two wonderful websites that make it easy:
www.justgive.org
www.changingthepresent.org

Or start your own giving website, such as I did for the PATHwalk at firstgiving.com. My site is www.firstgiving.com/lois

You could create your own giving site for your personal favorite cause or register at one of those site, just as you would at a bridal registery at a store.

A gift to a worthy cause is a meaningful expression of your values that you’re sure to feel good about.
