The I Do Foundation

You know you don't *have* to just register for things like that sexy Kitchenaid upright mixer (and yes, this is the pink version that we are currently registered for) or the overpriced place settings that sit high up on your shelves and get used once every eon or so (yep, ours are pictured above). Through the I Do Foundation you can actually set up your registry so that your guests give donations to your favorite charities.

If you don't have much in the way of pots, pans, spatulas and silver platters to call your own and don't want to give up the idea of gifts altogether, there are other options as well: You can set up a registry with their partner stores so that a portion of each purchase made is donated to a charity of your choice.

Instead of the typical "tossed in the back seat" wedding favor, you can make a donation to your favorite charity instead in honor of each guest.

Are you taking a honeymoon? If you simply book your trip through one of the foundation's partners (sandals, for example), 5% of your purchase will go to charity.

With all of the piles of cash, overpriced vendors, and whopping extravagance associated with weddings these days, its nice to see an organization like this that has come along to try to help us all remember that there are sooo many easy little things we can do to help out.
