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.

» Meet this month's charity! 5% of May 2018 sales will go directly to:

Committee to Protect Journalists

What does the Committee to Protect Journalists do? I’ll let them tell you:

CPJ promotes press freedom worldwide and defends the right of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal. CPJ ensures the free flow of news and commentary by taking action wherever journalists are attacked, imprisoned, killed, kidnapped, threatened, censored, or harassed.

Hundreds of journalists are killed, harassed, or imprisoned every year. For 30 years, the Committee to Protect Journalists has been there to defend them worldwide.

Why do we protect journalists? Journalism plays a vital role in the balance of power between a government and its people. When a country’s journalists are silenced, its people are silenced. By protecting journalists, CPJ protects freedom of expression and democracy.

When journalists can’t speak, we speak up.

Charity Navigator gives the CPJ  4 stars (out of 5) and a score of 93.17 (out of 100), reporting that 77.5% of donations go directly towards program expenses.
