The bride and groom have been happily co-habiting for a couple of years and have a majority of the things needed for domestic life. No gift is required or expected. Should you still wish to contribute, please consider donating to one of our favorite charities, registering to save a life (for free!), contributing to our travel fund, or viewing a few big-ticket fantasy items on our Amazon registry.
Register to save a life!
Every 3 minutes in the U.S., someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Six out of 10 patients are unable to find a compatible donor, many of them are children. You can help change that by registering with DKMS: Delete Blood Cancer as a potential donor! The registration process takes about 15 minutes and costs nothing.
Both Rob and Jen have joined the list. One of our friends was able to save a child's life in France! Jen also combined a donor drive with her a birthday party a few years ago and one of her friends from that party was matched to woman in North Carolina.
