More and more bridal couples are opting out of giving small thank-you favors to their wedding celebration guests and are instead making donations to their favorite charities, including the Associated Humane Societies and Popcorn Park Zoo.
To make your occasion a little more special, AHS is helping the bride and groom say “thank you” to their guests while donating to a special cause. Couples who make a gift to AHS/Popcorn Park will receive attractive cards that say the couple has made a generous donation to help animals, plus the guests can use the cards for one free admission to Popcorn Park Zoo.
The happy couple will also receive packets of Forget-Me-Not seeds that can be used as table favors or given as thank-you gifts. The back of each seed packet contains contact information for the Associated Humane Societies and has a small inscription which is perfect for the beginning of a new life together:
"Seeds represent a new beginning, a hope that life will start again with the promise of beauty and peace. Like a seed, the Humane Society brings the promise of a new life to many animals who have know little joy or comfort. Please plant these seeds and watch them grow with our best wishes and please help us create a better life for many unfortunate animals through your support."
This small gift is the Society's way of saying `thank you' to the new couple and to the family and friends celebrating their special day. It is truly gracious of newlyweds to donate to the animals in need at the Society and Popcorn Park Zoo while sharing our message and mission with your guests.
Since this program began in November 2007, 5 newlywed couples have chosen to contribute to the animals in our care by taking part in this new program.
If you would like to share your wedding day celebration with the Society in this special way, please contact us for more information.
