Anna and Dan and their wedding gifts
My friend Elaine reminded me that Anna and Dan, friends of ours at the Unitarian Church in Westport, asked for gifts for their water project in Kenya when they married in 2005. You can read more about it here.
On their website they describe planning for their honeymoon which they wanted to make a service project in Chepsaita, Kenya.
“We contacted Ben, who was very receptive and appreciative of our offer. He and members of the community identified fresh, protected drinking water and the rebuilding of the nursery school as priorities. Instead of giving us traditional gifts we asked our wedding guests to make a donation towards our efforts.”
