A recent survey by the national non-profit, the Center for a New American Dream, revealed that 70 percent of Americans would welcome holidays with less emphasis on material gift giving and spending!
Lancaster’s annual Alternative Gift Fair has raised over $125,000 for 50 different non-profit agencies in our community and around the world! We THANK everyone who made a purchase or volunteered time in some way to make the fair possible over the past 4 years!
Missed the alternative gift fair? You can now purchase gifts YEAR ROUND at Ecoloco, 55 East Main Street, Lititz PA 17543. Our shopping cart will open in early November for the 2013 participants and close in Late December 2013. It will reopen again on this website in early January for year round sales!
Ecoloco's website is www.ecolocogifts.com where they sell fair trade and socially
conscious/eco-friendly gifts as well so it really is a good fit for the alternative gift fair.
Purchasing Alternative gifts is an opportunity to give back and MAKE A DIFFERENCE to the larger community and honor your friends and loved ones at the same time. Instead of purchasing traditional gifts, participants purchase meaningful donations to local and global non-profits while improving the lives of others whoe are not on anyone's gift list!!
