They are no longer taking applications for new charities. The only way we can be listed is to be nominated by an engaged couple who wishes to use their site.

So, if ANYONE knows of someone getting married, all they have to do is ask for a donation to the PF (can be as little as $10) in place of a gift, using this website. They can also make a donation in place of buying wedding favors and purchase the table cards letting their guests know that that is what they did.

Wish this was around when I got married. Neat idea.

I just came across a great site: I Do Foundation (http://www.idofoundation.org/welcome/favors/)

They offer favors for guests that are great. The bride and groom register at the site, choose their charity and the amount per guest, and they are provided with cards for the guests. "Thank you for joining us on our special day. In honor of our guests, we have made a donation to xxxx charity."

No, the PF isn't listed...but brides and grooms do have the ability to request unlisted charities!
