Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won’t be greeted with stacks of perfectly wrapped boxes containing things like blenders and toasters immediately after saying “I do.” Instead, the couple is taking a more mindful approach, by asking guests of the royal wedding to pay it forward by making a charitable donation. So the royal duo won’t be the only ones feeling the love on their wedding day.

According to a statement from Kensington Palace, the lovebirds are “incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them since the announcement of their engagement and are keen that as many people as possible benefit from this generosity of spirit.” Because of that, just like Prince William and Kate Middleton did, they’ve selected seven charities that target a range of issues, like women’s empowerment and the environment.

So if your wedding invite also got lost in the mail (can’t seem to find mine anywhere!), you can still be part of the big day—minus the live Spice Girls performance—by donating to one of these charities: CHIVA (Children’s HIV Association), Crisis (homelessness), Myna Mahila Foundation (sanitary pads for women), Scotty’s Little Soldiers (supports children who lost parents in military), StreetGames​ (uses sports to empower young people), Surfers Against Sewage (protects the oceans), The Wilderness Foundation UK (promotes benefits and enjoyment of nature).

Hopefully the royal duo’s humanitarian agenda continues to make an impact long into to their married life.

Here’s the healthy-ish spin Meghan Markle requested for her wedding cake. Or, here’s the two-a-day wellness practice that keeps her centered.
