Our Wedding Gift

First of all thank you for taking time to visit this page. We appreciate it and would like to apologize for seeming so assertive. We believe that when 2 people come together to spend their lives together , the best thing you can “gift” them is your best wishes and best luck ( believe us , we will need it) . We do not believe in any tangible gifts and let’s face it , we are not going to take it with us back to US.

Our society has made it more like a norm to give gifts for any occasion and we do not necessarily support that practice. Unfortunately , we have done it too , in the past. If not anything , a bouquet of flowers is always the safest bet than walking in empty handed ; right? WRONG. So many flowers just rot at the wedding venues and people do not even take them home. Imagine all the money collectively being wasted right there. Now imagine all your combined money being put together for a much better cause.

We would like , with your help , to be the start of the change that we like to see. We have set up links to donate whatever money you had planned to spend on our wedding gift or even just flowers toward the cause we believe in. it doesn’t have to be a huge amount , any small amount you donate, combined with the efforts and small donations from our fellow friends , will make a HUGE difference in someone’s life. It could feel a hungry child, a starving abandoned animal, ageing people deserted by their families. No donation is too small or meaningless. This is something close to our hearts and the only GIFT that would mean a lot to us. Kindly spare a little more of your time to BE THE CHANGE , BE THE INVISIBLE ANGEL to another life.

P.S : Some of the causes have a some donation amounts listed . You do not have to stick to that. You can always click on the *other option and donate whatever you wish ( big or small). Some sites may require you to sign in or register. Please do not hesitate or think of it as a waste of time. No one is too busy to help save a life.

Would it be awkward to walk into a wedding hall with hundreds of people , empty handed? After all not everyone is going to be THE change. Right?

NO. it is certainly not awkward or embarrassing . WE would love you for that and appreciate it. Kindly DO NOT bring any tangible form of gift to our wedding. Even if you do not donate , we are happy just with your presence on our big day.

What if I never really planned on buying a gift or getting a bouquet?

Well then, good job!! You are already the change we like to see. So sit back , enjoy the occasion and of course the food ;)

How would you know if we donated or not?

Well , we won’t and we don’t have to. However, if you do wish , you could send us a note, a brief message sharing your thoughts on our attempt and what cause you donated to ( we don’t have to know how much!!) to our email id rakshathasunil@gmail.com . It would make us a lot happier , knowing that our efforts did not go wasted :)
