Complete Weddings + Events has been in partnership with Global Partners in Hope since 2013. The goal is to build clean water wells and health centers that provide basic needs to individuals 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. We’re extending our typical one-month donation period to two months to help us reach our biggest goal yet: $100,000 in one year!
A Portion of Your Purchase is Donated
During the month of September and October, when you choose Complete Weddings + Events, 3 percent 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 make a difference with us.
Our Team’s “Bucket Night”
In addition to the percentage of sales that we put towards our donation Complete Weddings + Events holds events to raise money. Complete has a “bucket night” once a year in the Fall that allows our staff to get involved. On a given Saturday night in the Fall, we’ll throw a party for our staff after everyone’s events have finished. We put a bucket at the front of the room where our staff can donate using either Venmo or cash that they’ve earned through gratuity that evening. We love being able to get our staff involved in giving back and this is a fun way to involve everyone on our team.
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. Learn more about these sustainable initiatives from Global Partners in Hope to improve the lives of women and children in West Africa.
Help Us Hit Our Goal
Our goal of $100,000 for the #DoGoodTogether initiative wouldn’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.
Let’s Do Good Together!
