Congratulations on finding your happily ever after!
In lieu of traditional wedding favours, perhaps you may wish to make a donation in guests honour towards our kids in Kenya.
By supporting the Gathimba Edwards Foundation on your wedding day you will be helping us change lives of underprivileged children in Kenya through education, counselling, shelter, clothing and sustainable food solutions for their families.
We can provide small personalised cards to sit on tables (picture of these coming soon) or alternatively couples may wish to print their own so that the colours are in tone with the wedding theme. We would suggest a minimum of £1 per card but how much you would like to give is entirely up to you.
Alternatively we can design you small handmade key rings for each of your guests so they have a keep sake of your special day. Each key ring costs £1.50 each which includes postage from Kenya and the colour design can be chosen to fit your wedding colours.
100% of the profit from these campaigns will go to supporting our projects in Kenya.
The difference you can make
A donation of £70 can buy a bunk bed, 2 mattresses, blankets and bedding.
A donation of £150 can buy a 3000 litre water tank for a family to allow them to collect fresh rain water for bathing, cooking, cleaning clothes and drinking.
A donation of £300 can buy full school uniform for 11 children.
Other ways to get involved
- Instead of or as well as a traditional wedding gift list why not invite family and friends to make a donation to help you celebrate? You could create your own Total Giving page explaining to your guests why you have chosen the Gathimba Edwards Foundation on your special day.
- Collection envelopes on each table at your wedding.
- Collection cards to insert into your wedding invitations for donations (We can provide GEF stickers for the cards or envelopes for a small donation).
- For a unique honeymoon why not join us in Kenya? You could visit Mount Kenya, GEF families, help in schools, laze on the beaches of Mombasa or help us build a house? Guests can donate to raise money for the building supplies and land needed for the your own Kenyan house building project for an under privileged family in need.
