Wish Upon a Wedding

I know I’ve mentioned this amazing organization before, but I wanted to take a moment today to talk about them again. Wish Upon a Wedding is the world’s first nonprofit wish granting organization that provides weddings + vow renewals for couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances. They are less than a year old and will have granted 12 wishes by the end of 2010!

So, how can you help? During the month of November, they are hosting several fund raising galas and auctions throughout the country, and would like to invite you to participate. Whether you are a bride or groom to be, a wedding industry professional, or you simply love the concept behind their mission you can help make Wedding Wishes come true, while raising crucial funding needed to sustain this wonderful, new nonprofit organization.

Bid Your Wish for Wedded Bliss Online and Live auctions for a Worthwhile Cause

For the first time in history, couples getting married can plan their entire wedding from virtually any city in the United States, knowing that every penny they spend will go directly towards helping a couple in need. And it’s easy to bid. Find everything from invitations to flowers, catering to DJs, photography to wedding planners, honeymoons and more. Even if you are not getting married, check it out for other exciting items, such as dinners in top-rated restaurants, entertainment, sporting events and popular autographed memorabilia. Simply visit their online auction site to choose from hundreds of items from the industry’s best vendors. Also, if you are a vendor or sell a product, you can donate your services.

Every cent earned goes towards Wish Upon a Wedding and their mission to provide these heartfelt Wedding Wishes. Thank you in advance for all your support!
