Every year, Complete Weddings + Events dedicates one month to our annual fundraising campaign and donates 3% of our sales to our Do Good Together initiative, which provide basic needs in a developing country. In partnership with Global Partners in Hope (GPiH), this money has helped build clean water wells in remote areas of Mali and Togo, West Africa and helped fund the construction of a medical center. In 2018 alone, Complete Weddings + Events raised $40,000 with the help of Complete staff, customers, and wedding industry partners, and Complete has raised over $135,000 total since the initiative has started.
This fall, we’ve set a goal to raise $50,000 for the Do Good Together initiative. The proceeds this year will go towards providing medicine and supplies to get the medical center up and running next year once construction is completed.
After funding five water wells in West Africa, we began raising money to build both the neonatal and women’s recovery rooms as a part of a $3.2 million medical center. Our wedding industry partners nationwide have joined in to help accomplish our goals, and we are thrilled to announce the needed funds have been raised and the medical center construction is nearly completed! The project is set to be completed in January 2020.
In addition to raising money for these campaigns, we have sent Complete Weddings + Events team members to Togo where our teams met the families, women, and children being impacted by these efforts. We personally have seen lives change from the wells providing clean water to thousands of people in the area and learned how a medical center will be a huge benefit to women and children in the area.
Global Partners in Hope, Complete Weddings + Events, and the Wedding Industry will continue working together to provide sustainable growth in the area of Togo, West Africa. Thank you for joining us on this amazing and life-changing journey!
