WEBINAR: Organizing an Alternative Gift Fair – FAQs

by New Dream   |   June 12, 2018

This FAQ Webinar is a follow-up to New Dream’s previous webinar, “How to Organize an Alternative Gift Fair,” and will answer some of your questions about organizing this type of community event.

An Alternative Gift Fair is a way to promote the gift-giving tradition of the holiday season without the wastefulness and commercialization of conventional retail shopping. Alternative gifts prioritize meaning over materials—they may include charitable donations, gently used secondhand items, help for a community project, and more. Whether for a few dozen or a few hundred people, Alternative Gift Fairs are a fun and inspiring way to celebrate the holidays.

Jenn Knepper, organizer of Gifts That Give Hope (Lancaster, PA), answers frequently asked questions and practical planning tips for anyone interested in organizing one of these meaningful and impactful holiday events in his or her community.
