Celebrate your special day by helping us find a cure

Every hour of every day, 20 Canadians are newly diagnosed with diabetes. You can make a difference by including the Canadian Diabetes Association in your special day.

Nothing is sweeter than a gift with meaning

When you choose to include the Canadian Diabetes Association on your wedding day, we’ll work with you to put together a package tailored to your individual needs. You can choose from custom certificates, reception place cards (tent cards) and favour tags (tie-on tag) to show your guests that you are helping to find a cure. Give something back in lieu of gifts or favours and help us find a cure.

Skip the wedding registry

By asking your guests to make a donation to the Canadian Diabetes Association in your honour instead of buying a gift, you are helping those affected by diabetes live healthy lives, preventing the onset and consequences of diabetes, and discovering a cure.

We will send you a digital package that includes a certificate to display at your wedding, and donation request cards to include with your invitations. You can customize these items with your names and wedding date, and print them on paper that suits your wedding theme.

Give because love is sweet enough

Make your celebration even more special by donating to the Canadian Diabetes Association in lieu of handing out favours. Your guests will be delighted that you’ve chosen to give something back to honour them, as well as honour the memory of loved ones.

We’ll send you a package that includes a certificate with a holder for you to display at your wedding, as well as reception place cards or tie-on favour tags you can give to each of your guests that lets them know of your thoughtfulness. Get started today by contacting one of our Donor Services representatives at donation@diabetes.ca or calling toll free 1-800-BANTING (226-8464).
