It all started on the very first date newlyweds Brad and Jessica Bond ever went on. The couple went shopping for toys to give to underprivileged families that night seven years ago and on their anniversary every year since, they shop for Toys for Tots gifts. So when they were planning their recent wedding in Orlando, they decided to include their guests on a Toys for Tots shopping spree.
The groom says he wasn’t sure his bride would be on board for his idea, but she didn’t mind the idea of heading to Target in her wedding dress because it was all for a good cause. “I asked her and she immediately lit up and was all for it,” Brad says. “And if I didn’t know I had the woman of my dreams before, she cemented it.”
So right after their first dance, the couple passed out $10 Target gift cards to guests and they all headed to the store in their formal wear. And to make the whole thing even better, Target also donated a cart full of toys during their event. The wedding and shopping spree for charity were a big success and Jessica says, “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”
