David and Marina have each worked for social enterprises which aim to combat poverty. David spent time in Kenya and Colombia supporting small entrepreneurs on behalf of Kiva. Marina spent a few years in Peru and Uganda working with artisan seamstresses and jewelry makers.  

When thinking of who to fundraise for, we looked at highly rated, validated charities which work in countries we've worked and lived in. GiveDirectly met both these criteria! We would love if you'd consider giving to GiveDirectly in lieu of getting us a gift for our wedding. 

A little more about GiveDirectly...
GiveDirectly works by giving small cash transfers to the extreme poor in Kenya and Uganda (both countries have a special place in our hearts). GiveDirectly has been named a top charity for their impact and evidence-based approach by GiveWell, a charity rating site.
