If you are unable to attend the AGM, you may purchase gifts from the 2019 AGM Shopping List by downloading the Shopping List, filling it out clearly and mailing or delivering it with your check to: Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth, 840 Sandwich Rd., E. Falmouth, MA 02536 Your receipt and gift announcements will be mailed to you in mid-November.
FALMOUTH’S ANNUAL ALTERNATIVE GIFT MARKET is an unusual kind of shopper’s fair offering thoughtful, non-traditional gifts, while supporting those in need in our local community and communities in other parts of the world.
Buy a tax-exempt gift that benefits any of 10 local and 10 global charitable organizations. These nonprofit organizations, like the food pantries of Falmouth, Bourne, Sandwich and Mashpee, and worldwide organizations such as Bicycles4Humanity, help people on the Cape, in Massachusetts, and around the globe.
At the market’s Global Bazaar, you will find fine food products such as Equal Exchange coffee and chocolate, as well as hand-crafted items from The Sharing Foundation https://sharingfoundation.org and Mayamam Weavers https://www.mayamamweavers.com where “every purchase makes a difference in someone’s life.” Purchase of any of these fair trade items helps farmers and artisans in developing countries earn enough money to sustain their families and educate their children.
MANY THANKS TO OUR GENEROUS COMMUNITY: The 2018 AGM raised over $39,000.00 for 20 different organizations and the Fair Trade sales totaled over $11,100 for a grand total of $50,572.00.
