Weddings are a time for celebration, for bringing friends and family and loved ones together in one space, and a time for, above all else, giving thanks for the people and the circumstances that allowed your love to bloom in the first place. And as such, as Hurricane Florence continues to ravage homes and lives in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia, we’re finding new ways for couples, wedding guests, bridal party members, parents, vendors, and more to help those most directly affected by the storms.

As a part of The Knot Gifts Back, couples can directly link their wedding websites and registries to organizations that they feel passionately about in order to provide aid and support to those impacted by the hurricane’s high winds and rising waters.

With The Knot Gifts Back, the purchase of each qualified gift on a couple’s wedding registry will enact a 3 percent donation to the charity of the couple’s choice, at no extra cost to either the couple or the wedding guest.

Direct Relief, one such charity, is currently supporting local healthcare organizations in the storm’s path, and is a prime place to start for those hoping to shed a little love and light on the victims of the storm. Other such organizations that could use a little love include:

American Red Cross
Americares Foundation
Save the Children
America’s Blood Centers
Armed Services Blood Program
Frank’s Nation
Project HOPE
Habitat for Humanity
United Way
Salvation Army

To help and make a direct impact on recovery and restoration efforts, consider adding these organizations and charities to your registry page, your wedding websites, and spread the word to loved ones.
