Subject: Wedding Donations
I am Priyanka I am getting married this year in December. My fiance and I have jointly decided that we will contribute the gifts we collect (cash) at our wedding to a noble cause. We are currently looking for trusts and foundations who can fulfill this wish. We thought your society would be a good fit to serve this cause. I have looked at the website and am much impressed. Kindly guide us to make a difference in somebody's life.

All of us have attended weddings, sometimes they are lavish and many times the gifts given are not of great use to the couple. Donâ€™t you think that we can have such pragmatic and wonderful approach for starting a married life together! Just imagine a wedding card which reads
At the end of the day your guest is happy that he has given something and you are happy that you have given something to society. Imagine the good wishes you receive for this simple and touching gesture. In fact such good thoughts and deed from ordinary people keep the world going. I definitely feel that this is a message which needs to spread across the whole world, India or abroad.
