Due to the difficulty of travelling with gifts, we are opting-into an alternative registry with some projects the two of us are passionate about. Donations to this registry vastly improve the outcomes of people 🤸🤸 and our planet 🌍.
Eden Reforestation Projects
The amount of international travel required for this ceremony and the accompanying CO₂ that it will produce is something we cannot ignore. Though there are larger projects on our registry, as we are requesting your participation in travelling, we know there is a direct impact to this adventure. We estimate 128 metric tonnes of CO₂ will be created due to the corresponding international travel.
To offset this, we are raising money for Eden Reforestation Projects. Their projects hire people to plant trees in countries with comparatively low Purchasing Power Parity, allowing for substantial impacts on environmental, agricultural and social factors. If you are looking to find out more, or make a direct donation, please check out: https://edenprojects.org/ We are happy to use GoFundMe to raise money for this, due to their relatively low fees and being able to track our progress to our goals. Thank you!
Disease Prevention Fund
Malaria Consortium is devoted to preventing, controlling and treating malaria (and other communicable diseases). We believe in their mission and believe that even a small amount of change can make a large, positive impact in their focus area. Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention, especially an evidence-based program like Malaria Consortium's, has been shown to need only a small amount to make large changes, but also has been shown to have substantial room for more funding. If you are looking to find out more, or make a direct donation, please check out: https://malariaconsortium.org/ We are happy to use GoFundMe to raise money for this, due to their relatively low processing fees and being able to track our progress to our goals. Thank you!
Bail Fund For Incarcerated Muslims
Believers Bail Out
Believers Bail Out (BBO) is a community-led effort to bail out Muslims in pretrial incarceration and ICE custody. BBO supports efforts to abolish money bail and to raise awareness within Muslim communities on the injustices of the bail bond system, immigration bonds, and the broader prison-industrial complex. BBO's aim is to move towards a world rooted in accountability and healing, rather than punitive responses of the police and prisons. They seek to create sustainable change in our society by focusing on three major areas of concern: the prison-industrial complex, anti-Muslim racism, and anti-Blackness.
