Arlington, VA Gifts That Give Hope Fair


Help Make the World a Better Place. Give Hope.

We put a new spin on gift-giving. The concept is simple: Make a donation to one of our nonprofits, personalize a Gifts That Give Hope greeting card for a loved one, and give an act of kindness as a gift. Thanks to our generous shoppers, Gifts That Give Hope is supporting acts of kindness around our community and the world this holiday season.

The Gifts That Give Hope ONLINE STORE will open in November 2020! 

Stay tuned for the list of 2020 Gifts That Give Hope Nonprofits...

Teaching Our Kids About Kindness & Giving

Bring your kids and visit the Gifts That Give Hope Children's Fair. Teaching young people about the importance of philanthropy through giving is one of the primary goals of the Gifts That Give Hope fair. Kids can shop at the Children's Fair for $5 items from our nonprofits and decorate cards for loved ones to send along with their gifts of kindness. Kids can enjoy snacks, coloring, music and activities during the fair while you shop, including interactive demos brought to you by Coder Kids and hands-on cooking provided by Tiny Chefs.

Ready. Set. Be Kind.

It's time to be kind! Take the challenge and complete one kind gesture each day with our 2019 Kindness Challenge CalendarWe're challenging the Gifts That Give Hope community to get in the spirit of the season with our 30 days of Kindness, and spread joy during the holiday season. Don't forget to share your kind acts on social media with #NovaKindKids, and bring your completed calendar to the Gifts That Give Hope Fair to receive a special Kindness Badge!
