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 grateful to clients like you who've joined with me in donating to these fantastic organizations:

ACLU
Houston Food Bank
Lambda Legal

National Alliance to End Homelessness
Planned Parenthood
The Puerto Rico Real-Time Recovery Fund
RAINN (Rape,
Abuse, and Incest National Network)

Southern Poverty Law Center

» MEET THIS MONTH'S CHARITY! 5% OF January 2018 SALES WILL GO TO:

Planned Parenthood

What does Planned Parenthood do? I'll let them tell you:

Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual's income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual's right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.

Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is

  • to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual
  • to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services
  • to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality
  • to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications

Charity Navigator gives Planned Parenthood Federation of America a rating of 92.33 (out of 100) and 4 out of 4 stars.
