Generous couple opts for charity wedding gifts

From July 9, 2015

When Joseph and Twyla, two Universal Promise Sponsor A Child supporters, married in May 2015, they chose to do something amazing. They asked attendees to donate to three nonprofit organizations instead of giving wedding gifts. UP counts itself fortunate to be one of the three nonprofits: the others were the Alzheimer's Association and Camp Power (Roads to Success). The result? The generous wedding couple and attendees raised more than $20,000!!! How cool is that?

Here's to a long and happy marriage for Joseph and Twyla. Here's to other couples who are able and willing to follow their lead. And here's to those who will benefit from pure altruism. Love, love, love.
