A Note From the couple
Benjamin Lockshin & Lauren Egbert Just Married!
We think of our wedding as a time to come together and connect with those closest to us, which means sharing some of the causes closest to our hearts, as well:
Doctors Without Borders (https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org): MSF/Doctors Without Borders is an international humanitarian medical non-governmental organization best known for its work in conflict zones and in countries affected by endemic diseases.
Give Directly (https://www.givedirectly.org): We believe that individuals and communities know best how to enrich their own lives, and this organization is doing pioneering work in providing unconditional cash transfers to those who need it most. If successful on a large scale, this model could transform how we help people for the better.
Charity: Water (https://www.charitywater.org): When a community gets access to clean water, it can drastically improve health, increase food access, grow local economies, and help kids spend more time in school. 100% of donations go to clean water projects. Lauren and her Peace Corps community in Swaziland were once a recipient of Charity : Water’s funding.
National Park Foundation (https://www.nationalparks.org): We’ve spent lots of time together in our country’s beautiful national parks from coast to coast – we want them to thrive for generations to come! (See the photo of us in Crater Lake National Park, OR!)
