OK – It’s time to start your holiday shopping list. Does your uncle really need another tie? Why not give him a gift that aligns with his passion for the environment? Your best friend was a teacher all her life. What if you could find a gift that supports literacy for children in underserved neighborhoods? All the children in your family have grown up and, like many, your relatives are concerned about all the people affected by recent disasters. You want to give them gifts that will warm their hearts, and you wonder if there might be an alternative to buying them something from the store you’re not sure they even need.
Alternative Gift Fairs provide critical support for local, national and international organizations with established track records of helping people and the environment. They’re also a fun and inspirational way to bypass the stress of holiday shopping.
At an alternative gift fair or market, shoppers have an opportunity to support charities working to address the world’s social and environmental needs. Working from shopping lists, shoppers make donations to charities, supporting a specific service or item to help communities and environments in need.
