Late last year, you may recall that we announced our holiday giving program, Love. Write. Feed. For every vendor review written about one of our Pros on WeddingWire, we donated $1 towards a warm meal to feed those in need during holiday season!
The donations went to one of our five food bank partners within the region where the vendor is located. With over 42,000 reviews received during the campaign, we reached our goal! We were able to donate 41,600 meals across our food bank partners! Here’s the breakdown of how the meals were donated:
- Northeast Region: 10,000 meals to the Food Bank for New York City
- Mid-Atlantic Region: 5,000 meals to the Capital Area Food Bank of Washington, DC
- South Region: 12,000 meals to the Feeding South Florida food bank
- Midwest Region: 6,600 meals to the Greater Chicago Food Depository
- West Region: 8,000 meals to the Westside Food Bank in Los Angeles
Of course, we could not have reached our goals without the help of all our Wedding Pros, who helped us by providing their clients with an experience worth reviewing, as well as the wonderful WeddingWire users who wrote the reviews. Thank you all so much for helping us make a difference in the lives of people across the nation!
Many of our Pros even took the initiative to match their own reviews with donations to charities of their choice! Thank you to those generous businesses who contributed through their own efforts.
Thanks again to all our Pros, couples and food bank partners for making the WeddingWire Love. Write. Feed. program a success!
