Complete Weddings + Events has been in partnership with Global Partners in Hope since 2013. We have helped build clean water wells and health centers that provide basic needs in developing areas in West Africa. Last year alone, Complete Weddings + Events raised $54,000 with the help of Complete staff, customers, and wedding industry partners. This year, we’re raising the bar, and extending our typical one-month donation period to two months. All to help us reach our biggest goal yet: $100,000 in one year! Let’s Do Good Together!
A Portion of Your Purchase is Donated
During the month of September and October, when you choose Complete Weddings + Events, 3% of your package goes to our Do Good Together 2022 fundraising initiative. Funds raised will go towards building two surgical rooms to benefit mothers and children in Togo, Africa. We thank all our couples and event coordinators for choosing Complete and helping to make a difference with us!
Fundraising for Surgical Rooms
Having surgical rooms is the number one need requested by the Togo health center staff. Currently, without a surgical center, if an emergency C-section is needed to be performed during childbirth, the mother has to be transported to a hospital miles away risking both the mother and child during the long commute. These rooms would allow for surgical procedures, like C-sections, to be performed by trained on-site doctors.

Help Us Hit Our Goal
Our goal of $100,000 for the #DoGoodTogether initiative won’t be possible without your support! Whether you’re adding Complete services this fall, helping to share our initiative, or sharing what Complete can offer for those planning a wedding, support is appreciated on all levels!
When you book any service this September or October (DJ, photography, videography, uplighting, coordination, or photo booth), a portion of the proceeds will go towards building surgical rooms to save women and children during childbirth.

The Impact on Patients
With previous work in West Africa, Global Partners in Hope has been able to make life-changing impacts on their patients. Here are a few words from previous patients:
“My child has epilepsy and nothing had ever worked. Multiple times a day, he would drop to the ground and shake violently. Everyone looked at us with fear and pity for what they believed to be the evil spirit that he had. But the health center gave us daily medication that stopped the seizures and we can now live in peace and joy.”
– Malian Patient
“I had suffered for years with awful skin problems that not only caused great irritation and discomfort but, also brought me shame in the community. Thanks to the special creams at the health center my skin has fully cleared up and I am free from the irritation, discomfort, and shame.” – Togolese Patient
