Gifts and Registry

As September approaches, many people have begun to ask where we have registered. We have selected several items at Macy's and Crate & Barrel to provide us with memories of the joy you shared with us.

However, we also recognize that we both have been blessed and we would like to share our love with those less fortunate. In lieu of a gift, we would be honored if you would make a donation in our names to one of the following organizations:

1. Trickle Up (Trickle Up's mission is to help the lowest income people worldwide take the first steps up out of poverty by providing conditional seed capital, business training, and relevant support ).

2. Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS combines independent scientific research and citizen action to develop innovative, practical solutions and to secure responsible changes in government policy, corporate practices, and consumer choices).

3. Women for Women International (Women for Women International helps women in war-torn regions by providing: financial and emotional support, job skills training, rights awareness, small business assistance).

4. Human Rights First (Human Rights First believes that building respect for human rights and the rule of law will help ensure the dignity to which every individual is entitled and will stem tyranny, extremism, intolerance, and violence).

Thanks for reading our blog. More to come after we return from our camping adventure!
