Are you planning a wedding in the U.S.? Are you part of the vast wedding community of photographers, bakeries, florists, venues, and coordinators?
Love Gives Way is working with brides, grooms, and the wedding community throughout the States to raise funds and awareness to abolish slavery.
Love Gives Way is rallying the wedding community around organizations who fight sex trafficking. This happens when engaged couples book/hire Love Gives Way vendors for their wedding who then give back a portion of their profits to non-profit organizations that are based in their very own cities. Launched in 2011 by wedding photographer Andy Brophy, Love Gives Way currently supports 13 non-profit organizations in ten different US cities through the combined efforts of wedding industry vendors and brides and grooms.
Wedding vendors can offer packages that donate a portion of the funds to the restoration of sexually exploited people through the organization Love Gives Way…After explosive growth in ten cities including many of our NotWedding cities (Atlanta, Birmingham, New York, Nashville, Boston and Charleston), Love Gives Way founder Andy Brophy restructured the organization to create even more generous, transparent donations between wedding vendors and partner causes in each city.
“We desire to be as transparent as possible in our intentions with Love Gives Way and want as many vendors as possible participating and partnering with local non-profits fighting sex trafficking,” explains Brophy. Love Gives Way vendors now have the option of three different generosity plans, allowing 5-10% donations from select packages to organizations combating human trafficking (excerpt from The Not Wedding blog).
