I never thought of being in a situation wherein I spent many months preparing for a wedding only to cancel it days before the scheduled date. But this is a challenge that a couple surpassed recently. And the good news is, their decision led to an act of goodwill for Hurricane Harvey victims.
Texas couple Josh Tillis and Dayna Skolkin must have been very excited to exchange their vows before Hurricane Harvey hits the State. However, given the situation in their area after the devastating catastrophe, the pair decided not to pursue their wedding.
Apart from the celebration on their exact wedding date, the couple also planned a pre-wedding dinner for their friends and families. The event was supposed to be held at the Aishel House in Houston, a charity that was co-founded by the bride’s mom.
But as mentioned above, the couple cancelled the event already, which rendered all the preparation apparently useless. However, the charity thought of a wise and great idea. They still prepared the food that was intended for Tillis and Skolkin’s pre-wedding dinner. The organization then distributed the meals to Hurricane Harvey victims who were receiving treatment at the Texas Medical Center.
This act of goodwill surprised Skolkin and somehow made her feel better despite the heavy decision of cancelling her wedding. She actually didn’t know that the charity decided to use the food for her pre-wedding dinner to feed Hurricane Harvey victims.
As Skolkin narrated, she had no idea about the good deed. When she and her partner visited the charity, meals were already packed and ready to be distributed to those displaced by the huge catastrophe.
The couple then stepped in to help prepare more food and according to the bride, it was amazing to be able to help her community. “My fiancé and I went over there and helped to make the meals. “Everyone in Houston right now is doing everything we can to try to help. Once we were able to get out there and do something for the community, it felt really amazing,” Skolkin told Inside Edition.
