Hello Family and Friends! 

We (Mallory and Zach) will be traveling to Malawi in November for our Honeymoon to fulfill our long-time goal of building a school.  Though we'll only be in Malawi a week, we are working with the BuildOn organization, which hires local help to oversee and drive the construction to completion.  We'll just try our best to not get in the way :)

We chose BuildOn to help us meet our goal because of its focus not just on constructing a building, but also filling it with long-term, dedicated teachers and building a long-term relationship with the community.  We've seen many projects via other organizations that have good intentions, but do not have effective long-term support of their projects.  This leads to new school buildings without teachers, medical clinics without supplies, and libraries without employees.  After much research, we decided that BuildOn was the best and most effective organization to make our goal a reality!

We intentionally do not have a gift registry for our wedding, and please know that your presence at our wedding is more than enough of a gift.  Despite that, many of our extremely generous friends and family have insisted they provide some sort of gift.  If you feel the need to give a gift, may we suggest donating to this BuildOn campaign, and being part of our project? 

Love,
Zach and Mallory
