Charitable Giving Instead of a Wedding Gifts

For Beth and Alan it was an easy choice to ask their guest to donate to a charity closest to their heart.  They  asked their guest to donate to National Arbor Day Foundation instead of buying a wedding gift.

They made arrangements through the National Arbor Day Foundation, which plants trees in national forests that have been destroyed by fire, insects, or disease. The foundation also has a rain forest protection program. "We wanted to give something more meaningful and lasting than candy, matches, or wine," explains Beth.

"We knew we wanted to do a charitable favor, but didn't want to just donate money. With the trees, each person knows there is a tree out there that has been planted just for them, which makes it very special and personal."

First Daughter Ivanka Trump will be meeting with victims of human trafficking in Rome as part of President Donald Trump’s international trip to Europe and the Middle East.

Donald Trump finally met  Pope Francis Wednesday.  In attendence was Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump as well as First Lady Melania Trump.

For Mr. Trump, who came here after stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel, the visit to the Vatican capped a tour of the ancestral homes of three of the world’s great monotheistic religions.

For Francis, who made his own landmark visit to Egypt last month, it was a chance to welcome a second American leader, after President Barack Obama paid his respects in 2014.
