The wedding industry never ceases to amaze me. I’m proud to say that we are all part of a truly generous and caring community. Here are just a few of our wedding forum
wedding professionals who are reaching out to help Haiti in this time of crisis.
Katie Martin of Eco-Beautiful Weddings
, has organized a trip in March for various wedding professionals to fly to the Dominican Republic. The group, which includes Tracy DiNunzio of Recycled Bride
will be doing aid work for five days in a town near the border of Haiti called Jimani. They will work with a group called World Vision
and are slated to build schools for the Haitian refugee children that are flooding the Dominican Republic. They have been instructed to pack light and to bring two suitcases filled with toys and supplies for the Haitian children.
