We feel very fortunate to have each other, two great dogs, our health, and a
wonderful home to call our own. We appreciate that friends and family may wish to express their congratulations with gifts. A charitable donation in our
honor would make us very happy.
In lieu of a wedding gift registry, we ask that you consider joining us in
supporting one of these worthwhile non-profit organizations:
- Peninsula Habitat for Humanity

Details on each of these is below.

Mission: To build quality, affordable, ownership housing through volunteer
efforts in long-term partnership with qualified families.
How it works: The target population served by Peninsula Habitat for
Humanity is low or very low-income families living in San Mateo County, California, that have a strong desire to be homeowners and commit to work
500 hours of "sweat equity" for their down payments. These families would be would be unable to purchase homes in the traditional housing market.
Peninsula Habitat for Humanity builds homes for homeownership and offers a0% interest mortgage to its buyers. Each homeowner makes mortgage
payments into the "Fund for Humanity." Since the fund for Humanity is used to buy building materials for more houses, the partner family
participates in a cycle that gives back to the community. As each partner family pays their mortgage, they help other families buy houses too. Home
ownership gives people a stake in their community, resulting in better neighborhoods and safer streets for all of us.
