Shop for A Cause
November 30 and December 1, 2012
Shop for A Cause is an open market supporting a mix of for-profit businesses and not-for-profit organizations all promoting their special goods and crafts. There will be items for sale like kitchen utensils and cookware, hammocks, chocolates, hand bags, and jewelry, including earrings, necklaces, etc. Some of the items are manufactured in the US, but many of the goods are handmade, coming from far-away places like Uganda and Kenya. The intent of the Shop for a Cause organizers is to promote sales of one-of-a-kind, beautiful, and made-with-care crafts.
At the same time, the money from sales will empower someone in their fight against poverty and provide leverage toward social justice in areas across the world. Our shopping really can make a difference! Come and meet Nadine Morrison who was raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Over time she has learned to make tipis, native bead work, and the signature Lakota Star Quilts. Nadine will be selling these and other crafts. For specifics, go to: Shop for A Cause.
