Are you looking for a more meaningful Christmas?
Do you have enough stuff? Want to simplify your holidays? Does your family keep asking what you want for Christmas? How about a little charity this holiday with gifts from the Alternative Christmas Bazaar?
Do you give gift cards and money to family and friends? Do you worry they are impersonal? Why not add a little meaning with a gift of charity from the Alternative Christmas Bazaar.
Gifts purchased from the Alternative Christmas Bazaar are financial contributions to non-profit missions given as “Christmas presents” in honor of family and friends. Your gift will provide to charities—here in northeast Ohio and around the world—services to help children, adults, families, communities, and animals in need.
How does it work? Shoppers attending the bazaar visit booths where representatives of the charities will be present to explain their services. At the bazaar you will place your orders and receive a custom-designed greeting postcard and description of the gift’s ministry for each donation you make. You can then give those cards to your dear ones to advise them of your charitable gift in their honor!
This year you can select from more than 14 missions including Puppies Behind Bars, Habitat for Humanity, the USO, the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter, Presbyterian Disaster Relief, Laura’s House, Church World Services, North Coast Health Ministry, The Gathering Place, and many more.
Volunteers needed for the day of the event! If you would like help with the many aspects of this event, including cashiers, greeters, and coffee hour bakers. Please contact Anne Busher, Chuck Erml, Lisa Poole, Sara Doan, or Dr. Fancher to find out where you can help out.
