Complete Weddings + Events has worked in partnership with Global Partners in Hope since 2013 for the Do Good Together initiative. This organization helps 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 with the Do Good initiative. 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, three percent of your package goes to our Do Good Together 2022 fundraising initiative. Donations 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.
Why Fundraise 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. Both the mother and child are at high risk 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.
Sharing Their Journey
The owners of our Wichita franchises, Scott & Andrea Karnes, joined Global Partners in Hope on their Togo trip in March 2022. On their trip, they attended a dedication event of a water well, provided by Complete fundraising, toured GPiH medical facilities, and engaged in cultural exchanges in Africa. Their trip was a very eye-opening experience, leaving a profound impact on the two of them.
“We need to share our wealth, financially and spiritually,” Andrea said. “We can make a difference in Togo by simply providing water and medical care. Even the simplest actions can benefit so many and we can already see the results.”
“I have learned to not take things for granted,” Scott said. “We are so privileged to have all that we have and that we don’t have to worry about things like clean water to drink… having to walk miles to get clean water. GPiH is doing things differently than other organizations and I’m glad to be a part of the good this organization is helping to create.”
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, up-lighting, coordination, or photo booth), a portion of the proceeds will go towards building surgical rooms to save women and children during childbirth.
