Giving Back by Getting Gifts For Your Destination Wedding

Words by Jennifer Stein

As you plan your destination wedding, I'm sure it's come to mind that getting gifts while many other people are in need may feel a little backwards. But your guests are going to want to give you a little something special and now you can give back while you receive.

If you encourage your guests to purchase your wedding presents via, you can help many a worth cause. is a new online shopping mall that donates up to 30% of every purchase made at more than 1,000 stores (including Williams-Sonoma, Macy’s, Target, Bloomingdale’s and other shops where couples generally register) to the your favorite charity.

With the billions of dollars that are being spent on wedding gifts registries each year, even a small percentage can go a long way! By using GoodShop, you still receive all of the gifts you've chosen, and your guests still pay the same price (or less with the hundreds of coupons listed), but at the same time, your favorite charity receives a portion of everything that was spent!

GoodShop works with more than 79,000 nonprofits – everything from the American Red Cross to local animal shelters – and if you (or your guests) favorite charity isn’t already listed with the site, you can add it!

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to

  • Designate your favorite cause (you only do this the first time)

  • Click through to your favorite store – shop from gift registries at hundreds of popular shops as you normally would and a percentage of your purchase will go to your cause!
