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.

» 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.
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:
» 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:

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.
