Sunday, December 6
The Alternative Christmas Market (ACM) reclaims the Christmas story by offering an alternative to the consumer frenzy that has overtaken the Christmas season.
In the spirit of making God’s love tangible, the ACM brings together non-profit organizations that address social issues on a local, national, and international level to give you the opportunity to participate in socially conscious gift giving. The gifts you buy for your loved ones will help kids visit their incarcerated parents, gang members get back on track, homeless and abused women, kids in foster care, and many others.
You can give the gift of a donation and receive a card signifying that organization, or you can purchase socially conscious and fair trade items from a number of organizations. The gifts you give will not only be signs of love and joy to your friends and loved ones, they will do much good on behalf of those on your gift list. So mark your calendar and plan to come shopping at All Saints on Sunday, December 6 — 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
(And if you’d like to volunteer at this festive event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 626.583.2734)
