Shop at Bethany College’s Alternative Gift Market this holiday season and buy donations for reputable charity groups around the world. Bethany’s eleventh annual Alternative Gift Market will be held on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Levin Room of Pihlblad Memorial Union.
The market is part of Alternative Gifts International, an interfaith agency that raises funds for global gifts through nationwide gift markets and individual donors. Shoppers will learn about numerous charitable projects and choose to which they want to contribute. In return, they receive an ornament as a token of appreciation. Instead of a traditional present, they can give the ornament to let the recipient know a charitable donation has been made in their name.
