Host a Charitable Wedding
Make a vow to change the way people think.
True love knows no boundaries. It is selfless, kind and has the ability to change the way people think. At the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia, we know showing your love to Nova Scotians living with mental illness and addiction will provide the kind of hope and support hundreds of thousands of your friends, neighbours and co-workers so desperately need.
There’s no better occasion to spread the love than on your wedding day. Make the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia your charity of choice and turn your big day into Many couples are turning their big day into one of giving back. Hold mini-fundraisers during the festivities, encourage your guests to donate to charity in lieu of gifts, or get the entire wedding party into the spirit of giving with a fundraising challenge. There’s no limit to how you can raise funds or the impact your love will have!
Charitable Wedding Ideas
reinvent the REGISTRY
Swap your list of linens and things for a selection of charitable giving options to the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. Create a wedding registry featuring our many initiatives or named grants and give your guests the good feeling that comes with making a difference.
KISS FOR A CAUSE
Try a new spin on an old favourite. Encourage your guests to make a donation to the Foundation in exchange for a kiss. The game will not only liven up the festivities but improve the lives of Nova Scotians living with mental illness and addiction.
IN LIEU OF GIFTS
Already settled with everything you need? Then turn that feeling of love into the spirit of giving! Request your guests donate the money they would’ve spent on household items to the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia.
FAVOUR MENTAL HEALTH
Why give your invitees another trinket when you can provide hope and help eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness and addiction. Do your guests a favour and donate to the Foundation instead of giving thank-you gifts.
BUILD A STRONGER BOND
Bring all of your families, friends and loved ones together by pursuing a shared goal. Host a bachelorette with heart, create a fundraising challenge or hold pre-wedding festivities with mental health in mind.
