Lara Sanders and Samuel Mekonnen got married on May 31 2020 via Zoom with nearly 500 guests worldwide.
In lieu of wedding gifts, they encourage donating to a front line charity (Coronavirus Relief Fund).
"Like many, we strongly believe that this is a great time and chance to reboot, reflect on our goals in life, and focus on what matters the most. For us, that is family, love, happiness, and health".
On behalf of doctors and essential workers:
Thank You to the doctors, nurses, hospital workers, and essential workers for risking their lives to help others.
Words aren't enough to describe the incredible work you do out there.
From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you on a daily basis.
Coronavirus Relief Fund - created by Global Giving, is aiming to raise $5 million to send doctors and nurses to communities in need; to provide masks, ventilators, and other essential supplies to hospitals and clinics; and to help families and elderly people in some of the hardest-hit cities and refugee camps, while also supporting long-term recovery efforts to prevent devastation from future outbreaks.
