Advice and ideas to help you with your wedding gift list

Charity Gifts on your Wedding Gift Lists

Do you regularly donate to charity? How about considering asking for charity donations as part of your wedding gift list?


Oxfam is one charity who offers a diverse list of donation ideas, some of which come with a dvd so you can see what your donation has brought and the good it will do. http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/Hub.aspx?catalog=Unwrapped .


Most charities offer on-line donations and some then provide a receipt detailing what your donation will be used for, the link shows an example. http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/supportus/


Charity wedding gift donations are becoming a more popular idea for wedding gift lists. Most guests are quite happy to fulfil your wish if they understand why you are asking for donations in the first place.


When putting your wedding gift list together:

• start by detailing why you are asking for donations to be made to that particular charity.

• Consider how much you would like to donate in total and split it up into denominations (ie 5 lots of £10).

• Include a link to the website, make it easy for your guests!


By using a wedding gift list like http://www.e-weddinglist.co.uk, charity donation requests can be included alongside regular gift ideas. This is where you could include on your introduction page why you have chosen to ask for charity donations. Pass on the giving.


Good luck and happy listing!
