I wanted to take a momentt to share news of the 2nd Annual Girls Night Out to Cut Out Domestic Abuse Event on October 2, 2008, happening across the nation. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and to kick it off the Girls Night Out organization has teamed up with salons and spas from coast to coast to break the cycle of abuse and save lives. Gather your girlfriends and enjoy a night of pampering while supporting a great cause. You could even use this as a bride and bridesmaids spa night! Visit www.girls-night-out.org for a participating location near you as well as ticket information.
Support, Benefit, Empower!
With prices for everything going up these days, many couples are feeling a pinch in their pocketbooks when it comes to wedding planning. Trying to decide where to cut costs can be very difficult. This could be the perfect time to sit down and discuss what is most important to you and how your money can best be spent. Do your guests really need, or want for that matter, a shot glass with your names on it as a wedding favor? Instead, have you thought about a charitable wedding favor?
More and more couples are looking for socially conscious alternatives to the typical wedding-related items. Organizations such as the I Do Foundation (www.idofoundation.org) help couples find a charity that best fits their values and makes it easy to create donation opportunities. As the nation’s first wedding-focused nonprofit, the I Do Foundation offers solutions for couples who want to share these values with their wedding guests and provide them with a wedding favor that will make a lasting impression. I’m sure your friends and family will appreciate your donation in their name.
