As we did last year , we have chosen a designated charity to receive 10% of all our weddings signed in January. This year though, we are extending the signing period to be from Dec 15-Jan 31. January is our biggest signing month annually, so that is why we choose this time of year for our offering campaign. Last year Sandy Hook Elementary School Family Fund received our donation, and it was a very emotional one, as we really were shaken by the events that took place there last December.
This year we chose the Make A Wish Foundation. It is a charity that I have personally seen make amazing things happen for children that are going through a very rough time health wise. I have donated to them personally, and this year, we decided they would be a great one for our company to donate to. This was decided before Batkid, and that only made the reasoning stronger, as this is a foundation that really does make these dreams come true for these affected children.
