Most couples including many celebs wait to see what weird and wonderful wedding gifts they will receive on their wedding day, not this famous royal couple though! Prince William and the lovely Catherine Middleton (Kate), who quite possibly have access to everything their hearts desire, have decided to travel down a far more noble and giving route.
This week the young couple made a request that their wedding guests and well wishers make a charitable contribution instead of purchasing them wedding gifts! The prince and the future princess have set up a charitable gift fund and have requested people considering buying them a wedding present make a contribution to either of the charities from their selection.
In a time when the economy not only in Britain but the world over is hurting and stumbling along, this gesture is sure to bring them tons of goodwill. A list of 26 charities has been released including an anti-bullying organization, wildlife conservation organizations, children’s rights and support charities, charities supporting the furthering of arts and sports and much, much more.
Blue-blooded and grand as this entire royal wedding may be, William and Kate’s generosity has sweetened them to the general public even more. It’s also a great idea for all you couples getting married soon….even a small helping hand can go a long way and you can only have that many toasters and crystal glasses!
