Actress Sofia Vergara and actor Joe Manganiello got married last November in Palm Beach, Florida, and put together a huge wedding party.
But instead of getting wedding gifts to celebrate their union, the couple asked their guests to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a center that focuses on helping children with cancer.
In just two days, the “fundraising” received more than $16.000. Although it started with Sofia and Joe guests, anyone could contribute even if they weren’t part of the celebration, which made the dollar amount go even higher.
If you’re planning to get married and would like your wedding gift to be donations to St. Jude, you can do it too. There’s a website specially dedicated for this purpose.
“Weddings for St. Jude” is designated for anyone who wants their wedding guests to donate to the children hospital. St. Jude’s have treatment programs for brain tumors, leukemia and lymphoma, infectious diseases, blood disorders, sickle cell disease and solid tumors.
