Royal wedding turns charity fundraiser
Each category, which ranges from conservation to the arts to children and service personnel, includes five lucky charities to donate to. On the nature side of things, the couple has chosen efforts to protect the endangered Black rhino and greater one-horned rhino, Sumatran, Indian, and Amur tiger species, and the African forest elephant and Asian elephant. The conservation charity Earthwatch was also chosen.
“The deep care that the couple have for the environment is valued by the worldwide Earthwatch community and our good wishes are extended to them both on the occasion of their wedding,” said Nigel Winser, Executive Vice President of the org.
With the popularity of the royal wedding set to explode next month, such a fund can only mean good things for the lucky charities included. Let's hope this generous move by Kate and William inspire other couples to consider including charity in their wedding day celebrations.
