Dakin and I know some of our friends and family will want to give us wedding gifts. But here's the thing- we don't need anything. We're almost 40 and just combined two complete households. We've been doing this adulthood thing for a long long time. However, we're both super worried about the safety of vulnerable people in the US, and today that's more true than ever. Instead of buying us stuff, we're asking our friends and family to give an amount of money that's comfortable for you to one or more of the causes below. Some are national organizations we trust; some are friends of ours who could use support; some are community helpers we know who are helping kids in Oakland. If you'd like to give us a gift to celebrate our marriage, please take a look at the listings below and choose your favorite(s)! This site will track your gifts so we'll know what our friends contributed. We hope we can offer a lot of help to others through this registry. We're good. Really. We love you!
