Arlington, VA Gifts That Give Hope Fair


Give Gifts. Give Hope. Change Lives.

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 this holiday season.

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

2019 Gifts That Give Hope Nonprofits

Teaching Our Kids About Kindness & Giving

Visit the online Gifts That Give Hope Kids Fair with your children this holiday season! Teaching young people about the importance of philanthropy through giving is one of the primary goals of Gifts That Give Hope. Kids can shop on the Kids Fair page at the online Gifts That Give Hope store for $10 items from our nonprofits and decorate Gifts That Give Hope greeting cards for loved ones to send along with their gifts of kindness. 

It's time to BE KIND!

The 2020 Kindness Calendar is coming soon! From November 15th through December 12th, complete one kind gesture each day with your family. We would love our Gifts That Give Hope community to get in the spirit of sharing kindess and spread joy during the holiday season. Don't forget to share your kind acts on social media with #NovaKindKids! (Here is last year's 2019 Kindness Challenge Calendar.)
