two gifts for the price of one

If you know Brandon and me (which I am hoping you do since you are reading our blog…) then you know about Kyle. Stalkers: Kyle is Brandon's cousin who was diagnosed with Leukemia in February. Today when I got into work at 6:30 (yes, that is AM), I did what I do every weekend that I have to work on the OR floor -- I clocked in and went straight to my favorite wedding websites. Today's first website of choice was weddingchannel.com. I am always touch and go with this website, but today this proved to be even better than I thought it would.  Today, for the first time ever, I saw something on the wedding channel's website that actually, genuinely peaked my interest.
Of course, I had to find out more so I clicked on the link to select a charity.  And this is what I saw:

Step one -- yep those are our registries, only missing Bed, Bath & Beyond.  Step two -- hmm... let's go with Health, I thought to myself, hoping that maybe this could somehow come full circle and we could do something for Kyle.  On the next screen I saw exactly what I was looking for!

So, of couse, I selected the Lukemia & Lymphoma Society.

So here is what I am asking from you -- if you plan to give us a gift, please do so through this website.  The WeddingChannel.com will make a donation to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society whenever someone uses their site to purchase a gift from one of our registries. There is no additional cost to you or to us -- WeddingChannel.com will make the donations as their gift to us.  How awesome is that?

To recap: If you want to
give us a present, give one to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as well.  Seriously, could it be any easier to make a difference?  Answer: NO!
