In lieu of favors, we will be donating money in our guests' honor to two causes that are important to us. 

Child's Play is an organization that donates toys and games to children's hospitals all over the world. 

BuildOn (formerly Building with Books) organizes students in urban U.S. high schools to build schools and spread literacy to children in developing countries. 

We will also contribute  all the money raised during the traditional "dollar" dance with the bride and groom to these charities. We hope you will consider donating.
