Indianapolis, IN, Oct. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Dinorah and Adam dreamed of a destination wedding in Mexico City. The happy couple from Canada wanted to share their joy by doing something special for kids in need. Inspired by Christel House Mexico’s mission of helping impoverished children overcome the cycle of poverty, Dinorah and Adam made a request of family and friends. Instead of wedding gifts, the bride and groom asked guests to support the children of Christel House. The wedding was wonderful – and had a generous impact. Over $12,000 in donations were raised for Christel House Mexico! The newlyweds shared warm advice for all Christel House students. “Seize the opportunity you’ve been given!”
