I recently proposed to Gabriel Carroll. Some friends helped out, and here is the video! (Song starts at 2:51.)
Apparently, we each separately had the same idea that rather than a ring we would make a donation to charity. I tried to beat him to it, and the “ring” is a cheque made out to GiveDirectly, folded into an origami ring.
This kind of approach isn’t for everyone, but for us it’s more meaningful than a ring would be.
Thanks to everyone who helped out!
