Bride and groom take wedding party shopping for needy kids

Top Stories

For most couples, the wedding is a celebration all about them.

But a Florida couple wanted their happiness to extend to those in need. 

The bride, still dressed in her gown and the groom in his tux, whisked their loved ones away for a holiday shopping spree with a special mission. 

Love knows no bounds, and this couples generosity is limitless, since the day they met seven years ago. 

Brad and Jessica Bonds’ story goes back to their first date. That’s when he said he wanted to do something special because he knew Jessica was the one. 

Brad Bond: “So we pulled in the parking lot of Target, and I got the look that you’re giving me right now from her, and that’s when I explained, like I have parents that have always made Christmas special for me.”

Jessica Bond: “It’s something that has been a tradition for us like ever since we started dating 
so we are excited to share it with everyone we love and with you guys. I had no idea you were here.”

Saturday, they invited their entire wedding party to Target to shop for the kids for Toys for Tots.

Brad Bond: “So if we can make some kids smile on Christmas, didn’t matter if it was a one day relationship, it was successful.”

Eric LaRoche: “i think its wonderful. I’ve never seen this done before and I think this is a great benefit for all the kids. There are so many that are in need.”

Guests were given red envelopes with $10 gift cards each but they’re spending a whole lot more.

Jessica Bond: “I’m sure the kids are going to enjoy this, and that’s what Christmas all about, you know.”

Brad Bond: “I have the most amazing wife on the planet so if we are able to give back a little bit and share our blessing with others, then what better can we do.”
