Registry

Due to the difficulty of travelling with gifts, we are opting-into an alternative registry with a Newlywed Fund and some projects the two of us are passionate about. Donations to the charitable funds below vastly improve the outcomes of people 🤸🤸 and our planet 🌍.

 

Newlywed Fund

If there are two truths about the future, there will be lots of changes and lots of surprises. As Newlyweds, we expect that to be no different. This wedding and our wonderful guests have been at the forefront of our minds for years now, but we very much intend to have future adventures we can share with you. As you like, you are welcome to bring cash or check to Lisbon to contribute to this fund. If you are asked for verification of the last 4 digits of the associated phone number, it is 3354.

 

Disease Prevention Fund

Malaria Consortium

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.

Women's Reproductive Rights Assistance Project

WRRAP is a long-standing organization that focuses on providing safe access to abortion. They provide funds directly to pre-screened, pre-qualified health clinics and doctors across the nation on behalf of people in need of abortion services or emergency contraceptives. WRRAP does not ask for repayment of funds. WRRAP fills the gap between public and private funding and what low-income individuals are able to afford. If you are looking to find out more, or make a direct donation, please check out: https://wrrap.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.

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.
