JK Wedding Couple Says "I Do (Good)"

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you've probably seen this YouTube video of a particularly dance-tastic Minnesota wedding, set to Chris Brown's "Forever". Though they love the song, the happy couple isn't too pleased with Brown's record of domestic violence -- so Jill and Kevin, both social justice advocates, have launched a new site, where they're asking for donations to combat domestic violence.

On their site, they say, "due to the circumstances surrounding the song in our wedding video, we have chosen the Sheila Wellstone Institute. Sheila Wellstone was an advocate, organizer, and national champion in the effort to end domestic violence in our communities."

Hats off to Jill and Kevin for using their fifteen minutes of fame to raise awareness of this important issue.
