The best gift you can give us is your presence at our wedding, and if you can't be there, your sharing in our happiness. We have been truly fortunate and have accumulated a lifetime of material things, so we are taking the occasion of our marriage to give back.
We have chosen a few worthy non-profits, and hope you will join us in supporting one or more of them. Each one touches an area that is meaningful to us.
Work Vessels for Vets Inc. (www.workvesselsforveterans.org)
Started in our neighboring town of Noank, CT with the gift of a lobster boat to an injured Iraq War veteran, this small but mighty organization equips America's returning veterans with the tools they need to start a business or pursue a career education. WVFV has received multiple national awards with the commitment that 95% of all donations go to direct services to veterans.
Musack Inc. (www.musack.org)
Believing as we do that music changes lives, Musack provides instruments, lessons and teacher support to students in areas that would otherwise not have access to music education. Started in Nantucket, MA and later in Los Angeles, CA, Musack is now reaching students across the country and internationally.
National Wildlife Federation (www.nwf.org)
This is America's oldest and largest conservation organization. We are specifically asking for support of their Schoolyard Habitat Project. Should you choose to give here, please be sure to type McMurdy-Wagner Wedding in the "in honor of" box on the donation page, and your gift will be directed to Schoolyard Habitat. You can read more about this project at www.nwf.org/schoolyard.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity. We are so happy to have you all in our lives!
