      I just read on the Cancer Society site that they say between $5.00 and $10.00 per guest as a donation and they include either place cards, thank you cards or In Honor cards...that is pretty cool!

          That $5-$10 is only a suggestion. And basically you get a big card for the higher amt or a smaller card for the lower.
          My friend just got married & had a HUGE AHW 400+ guests - so she couldn't really afford $5 pp so she only donate $3 or something like that. I have an email address for a CCF person if anyone is interested. PM me.

          I opted not to go with this as the funds ran out!! I was going with the sandalwood fans AND the donation. But in the end my budget could only handle the fans!

            What a great idea! (I've actually never heard of this before, but i like it!) I think an animal shelter is a good idea! I was just thinking of going to volunteer at one....
            WHY DO MEN HAVE TO PUT A DAMPER ON OUR IDEAS?!?!?! Mine did the same to an idea I had this morning....It's RUDE!

              This is also a great way to remember someone. My dad died of leukemia when I was younger...we're putting things on the tables that say "In lieu of favors, a donation has been made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in memory of Kristen's dad"

                  Absolutely! What a great way to recognize him! I got chills thinking about it.

                  Joe's close aunt was diagnosed with cancer and shes going through a lot right now, so I know this will hit home with him and his family.

                    I think it's a great idea and not sure why you couldn't do two different donations. And to figure out the money, you would just figure out how much you would spend per favor and donate that lump sum.

                    Easy numbers: 10 guests at $5/favor = $50

                    Personally, I think $5/favor is alot, but our budget was small. So just do what you can, every little bit helps!!

                      We went to a wedding in Philly this past spring. The table assignments where on envelopes, inside was a letter saying how a donation to xxx charity in our name and a brief thank you for attending the wedding.
