Event Description

Join us at this year’s Alternative Gifting Fair! 
November 28, 2009 from 2pm to 6pm at the
American Museum of Radio & Electricity, 1312 Bay St., Bellingham

The Alternative Gifting Fair is a community event that offers holiday shoppers an alternative to consumerism. Make mindful donations to non-profit agencies working to make the world a better place. Acquire Gift Certificates from Event Venues & RE Use stores. Buy a box of nails or 2x4 to help build a house, help save native habitats or buy tickets to an event or an entire season for local Performing Arts Groups.
At the Fair, shoppers are presented with a range of holiday gifts to honor family and friends in a festive atmosphere. For each donation, shoppers will be presented with a holiday card which includes a description of the organization and gift.
In short, everyone wins:
+ Attention is brought to critical issues and the organizations working to resolve them
+ Help is provided to an individual, a family, an animal, or a precious natural resource
+ The gift-giver has the satisfaction of knowing that her or his money bettered the world
+ The recipient is honored to have “received” such a meaningful and precious gift 
Live music and tasty refreshments will be provided.
Boundary Bay beer offered at $3.00.
This is a “Toward Zero Waste” event.
