How Crowdfunding Can Help Support Your Dream Honeymoon

Honeymoon registries have become a popular alternative to traditional registries (because who needs a blender when you can go to Hawaii?). In addition, many couples are also choosing to link their honeymoon destination with a charitable experience.
