For this holiday season, how about giving a most thoughtful gift to your loved one: a donation to charity in their honor.  At today’s AGGW sponsored Alternative Gift Fair from 11:30am until 2pm at the NEA (1201 16th Street, NW) you can pick and choose from a selection of local, national and international beneficiary organizations; all of which address pressing problems in today’s world.

Gifts range from $10 and up, and purchase concrete items for the needy, such as books for children, water filters for families in Haiti, or toys for homeless dogs and cats.   Shoppers will find causes to match the interests and passions of everyone on their holiday shopping list.  And you gift recipients will be touched to know that the gift they have just received will have a very real and meaningful impact on people and communities in need.

If you can’t make today’s fair, other Alternative Gift Fairs are happening in Metro DC area and can be found at AGGW’s website.
