Jeannie Mai and Jeezy are backing the Asian community with funds from their recently-announced wedding registry. As PEOPLE reported, the married couple launched a charity registry with hopes to raise $50,000 for Stop Asian Hate — the campaign and nonprofit organization made popular in the wake of the Anti-Asian shootings in Atlanta. Funds from the registry will specifically be distributed to legitimate fundraisers supporting members of the AAPI community.

According to Mai, the charity registry aligns with her and Jeezy’s passion to give back to their respective communities — a quality that connected the newlyweds.

“What bonded Jeezy and I most is our passion to serve and take care of our communities,” “The Real” co-host said an interview with The Knot.

“We will spend the rest of our lives continuing to stand up against injustice, racism and hate.”

“It’s not just the recent events that make me mindful about our distinct culture,” she continued. “For Jeezy, everything — from his upbringing, experiences, struggles and his position in this white-centric country — is a learning curve for me and vice versa. Part of the foundation of our love is constantly discovering our respective identities and gaining an understanding from our experiences.”

Jeezy and Mai recently celebrated their love during an intimate wedding ceremony at their Atlanta home. They’re hoping guests of the event and fans of their relationship will help to support their marriage AND the cause.

An excerpt from their GoFundMe registry reads: “We want our wedding guests and loved ones to not only feel a connection to our unique backgrounds, but also to give back to a cause that is near and dear to our hearts as individuals and, together, as a couple.”

Awareness of the Stop Asian Hate movement grew after a total of six Asian women in Atlanta were killed amid shootings at two separate massage parlors. The non profit organization reportedly provides funds to Asian-owned businesses and helps to tracks incidents of discrimination, hate, and xenophobia against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.
