Giving Back

GIVING BACK

Planning a wedding can feel trivial in a world where there is so much hatred, violence, and injustice.

I know I struggle with the question of whether I'm doing enough work to make things better. And since you're reading this page on my website, I bet you are the kind of people who worry about these things too.

So when I left my former planning company behind and rebranded into Aisle Less Traveled, I decided to put my money where my mouth is:

» I've committed to donating 5% of every sale to organizations working towards social justice, full equality for all people, protecting this one planet we have, and generally making the world a better place. 

Every calendar month, I'll select a different charity to give to, and together we will help fund the hard work that so many amazing people and organizations are doing.

PAST CHARITIES

This program launched in May 2017, and I am so grateful to clients like you who've joined with me in donating to these fantastic organizations:

Abuse, and Incest National Network)

» MEET THIS MONTH'S CHARITY! 5% OF DECEMBER 2017 SALES WILL GO TO:

National Alliance to End Homelessness

The NAEH has a very important and straightforward mission:

"The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a nonpartisan organization committed to preventing and ending homelessness in the United States."

And what do they actually do? I'll let them tell you:

 

  • IMPROVE HOMELESSNESS POLICY
    The Alliance is a leading voice on federal homelessness policy. It analyzes enacted and proposed legislation and advocates for improved federal policy.
  • BUILD KNOWLEDGE THROUGH RESEARCH
    The Alliance analyzes data and research so that policymakers, practitioners, and the public have the best information about trends in homelessness and emerging solutions.
  • ENHANCE CAPACITY
    The Alliance provides capacity-building assistance to help communities turn policy solutions and proven best practices into viable, on-the-ground programs.

Charity Navigator gives the National Alliance to End Homelessness a rating of 91.16 (out of 100) and 4 stars, reporting that it spends 93.6% of its funds on the programs and services it delivers.
