Charity as a Wedding Favor

One of the current Wedding Trends is to have a charitable donation as a favor instead of the traditional box of chocolates or a matchbook, which I really like.

As some of you know, on November 23rd my Grandfather, Jack Frageman passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's Association is also the National Philanthropy of Tau Kappa Epsilon (Jonathan's Fraternity). So we thought it would be special to do a donation to Alzheimer's Association in lieu of a elaborate favor to honor Grandpa Jack and TKE.

Since Starfish and Sanddollars are a big part of our wedding theme, I was thinking of giving everyone a Sanddollar that says something like "A dollar for you, a dollar for them. A dollar has been donated to Alzheimer's Association in your name" and then have a small explaination of what Alzheimer's Association means to Jonathan and me.
