An international online wedding registry that helps couples build a new life together as husband and wife by allowing lovebirds to register for down payment on a home to call their own is currently contributing a portion of profits to help the people of Japan move one small step closer toward rebuilding their lives.
Half of Home for the Honeymoon’s profits from the next 20 couples to sign up will be pledged to the Red Cross relief efforts in Japan. Once 20 pair of future brides and grooms have signed up with Home for the Honeymoon, the online registry will continue to donate a portion of its profits to Red Cross’s humanitarian efforts for the next three months.
“We are so lucky to work with people who are planning some of the happiest moments of their life– their wedding and the purchase of their first home together,” says Christina Carrick, co-founder of Home for the Honeymoon. “It is heart-wrenching to see the faces of families who have lost not only their homes but, in many cases, their loved ones to this catastrophe. We hope that our contribution helps in some small way to ease their suffering and get the victims of this unspeakable tragedy back on their feet.”
The first of its kind in Canada, Home for the Honeymoon is available for use internationally. A 4% processing fee to cover the cost of handling the funds is all it takes for couples to create a registry. All funds are collected by PayPal and is available for use at the couples’ convenience. Pairs who are planning to say “I do” have the option of using their own real estate professionals or relying on Home for the Honeymoon to provide the home-buying services (including realtor and mortgage brokers) that will lead them through the process of property purchase.
A complimentary wedding website, which allows soul mates to share photos and “I do” details with guests, is included with each registry.
