25 Orgs to Add to Your Wedding Registry to Help Hurricane Victims

This hurricane season has been a disastrous one. While Hurricane Harvey's devasting flooding is over, Texas and parts of Louisiana have an extremely long road to recovery. And, just a few weeks later, the Caribbean, Florida, and the Southeast were struck by Hurricane Irma. Most recently, Hurricane Maria was catastrophic for many parts of the Caribbean and Puerto Rico, and Hurricane Jose threatened some of the islands as well.  People have lost everything and many are starting the process to rebuild their lives from scratch.  Charitable giving has become a popular feature for many couples' registries and if your wedding date is soon approaching, you and your wedding guests can make a difference for affected communities.
