There really isn’t all that much stuff that we want or need right now; what we’d really like is to get some new furniture. Towards that end, we have made it an option for you to purchase a gift card for us at Crate & Barrel. If there aren’t any individual items on the registry that call to you (or there aren’t any items left), please don’t feel weird about giving us a gift card. Our plan will be to use a whole pile of gift cards to buy the big furniture pieces that we really want, like a couch, a bed, and a bureau.
Finally, in addition to the two stores where we have registered for things, we have also created a personal registry with the Human Rights Campaign. HRC is the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, founded in 1980. In our opinion, it is the most powerful LGBT organization in the country and works on behalf of LGBT rights in the legislative, judicial, media, and educational spheres. While there are many other wonderful LGBT rights organizations that are worthy of support (e.g., the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Lambda Legal, The Point Foundation, etc), we have selected HRC for inclusion on our registry. If you choose, you can follow the link below to make a donation to HRC in honor of our wedding.
