Donating in Celebration

July 11, 2024

Got something to celebrate? Make your special occasion extra special by asking for donations instead of a gift. You can show your love by making a meaningful donation. Whether you’re marking an anniversary, birthday, engagement, christening, retirement, baby shower or wedding day, asking your guests to make the gift of a donation to REI can make a difference to thousands of people around the world.

Or perhaps you would like to make a donation in someone’s memory. This is a truly unique way to honor an extraordinary person who has touched your life. As they touched you, you can touch others.

By asking your friends and family to make a donation instead of giving presents, you are providing displaced communities with the opportunity to build a brighter future. Your donation will ensure refugees are given the knowledge and the skills to rebuild their lives.

Giving to REI is easy and rewarding. Donations made to REI will make you, your guests, family and friends feel good. Donations are easily accessible online and can be purchased in just a few minutes without leaving home!

 Consider making your special day even more meaningful by supporting REI.
