This bride says it best -
“When it came time to plan my wedding and decide on favors for the guests I knew that supporting Boston Children's would be more significant than any trinket. By making a gift in honor of all our friends and families we were able to support the amazing care and research here while also thanking our guests in a truly meaningful, lasting way.”

Share Your Love
Maybe you and your fiancé have decided that life has been generous to you, and in lieu of wedding or shower gifts, you would like your guests to make a donation to Boston Children’s in honor of your marriage.
Here’s how this bride describes it -
“Our destination wedding centers on an intimate gathering with friends and family—not on expensive presents or lengthy registries. In acknowledgement of our many blessings, and in celebration of health, family, and not needing anything more, we’ve asked guests to consider a donation to Boston Children’s instead of giving us spatulas, silverware, or other wedding gifts. Better that a gift go to young patients in need than into our bottom drawer.”
– Laura, married 5/7/2011
