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.
What does RAICES do? I’ll let them tell you:
RAICES promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas.
Founded in 1986 as the Refugee Aid Project by community activists in South Texas, RAICES has grown to be the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas.
RAICES is a frontline organization in the roiling debate about immigration and immigrants in the world. A diverse staff of 130 attorneys, legal assistants, and support staff provide consultations, direct legal services, representation, assistance and advocacy to communities in Texas and to clients after they leave the state.
Our advocacy and commitment to change are driven by the clients and families we serve every day as our attorneys and legal assistants provide legal advocacy and representation in an immigration system that breaks apart families and leaves millions without pathways to legal status.
Charity Navigator gives RAICES a score of 78.71 (out of 100), reporting that 93.1% of donations go directly towards program expenses.
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:
