Charitable Wedding Registries for Caring Couples

Heartful.ly offers gift registries for charitable giving, featuring over 1,500 nonprofits in 150 countries. According to its founder, "through a partnership with GlobalGiving, we are able to ensure the gold standard of vetted nonprofit activities to people in the United States who want to contribute to specific causes." Most Heartful.ly registry-creators also create traditional gift registries, and the company advises register for just what you actually need and use Heartful.ly for the rest.
“We’ve been in the market for about a year, working mostly with D.C.- and New York-based couples. After each wedding, we send an impact update that shows how the couple and their community have collectively made a difference. What makes it even more personal is that we offer people the chance to contribute to real projects (like building a classroom in a developing country) and we break down the donation amounts into tangible contributions (a pallet of bricks or bag of cement). We were seeing a lot of wedding guests use the platform and then request it for their own birthdays and other occasions, so we listened. We just opened up the site to create registries for birthdays and in January, all of life’s milestones."
