Dear Friends and Family,
In lieu of wedding gifts, we would appreciate your supportive donation to a charitable organization that is near and dear to our hearts. It would mean the world to us if our wedding could help to make a positive difference for animals in need.
The Anti-Cruelty Society is an animal welfare organization and animal shelter in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. It is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization that was founded on January 19, 1899 by a group of Chicago residents who had concerns about the treatment of the city's animals, from stray cats and dogs, to workhorses, to livestock. *Fun fact: The Anti-Cruelty Society is where we found our beloved kitties, Gladys Helen and Fermi Q.!
With love and gratitude,
Laura and Ben
