Photo Gallery - The Market in Pictures

As you enter the market, knowledgeable greeters will
give you a blank shopping list and explain
how the
market works.

Each booth is staffed by a volunteer
or worker who
is intimately familiar with
the work of the organization
and can explain
to whom they minister and how and
talk to you about how
your gift can further their work.

Some examples:

Heifer Project International provides a breeding pair
of animals
to an indigent family in a developing country,
who then promise to
share the first offspring with a
neighbor who
will also promise to do the same.  It's
truly a
"gift that keeps on giving".

Groups like the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers
continue their interest in important, life-changing work
in developing nations where they have served
when they were younger.

 Kindred Spirits, Inc. works with Death Row inmates to
             provide friendship and support for inmates and their families.

ECHO is a local Tallahassee organization working
to prevent homelessness by providing utility assistance,
job training, food parcels, and transitional housing for
indigent families in the Leon County area.

In addition to the agencies sharing their ministries, the
market has a card and craft shop that sells merchandise
from the various agencies, as well as beautiful hand-
crafted items from fair-trade groups.

The craft shop
many beautiful handicrafts from
countries around the world!

After paying with one check (or charge card) for all of your gifts from 
market agencies and the card and craft shop, you
take your shopping list to the calligraphy station where 
eager volunteers will complete a card personalized for 
your recipient.

Your shopping is finished, your alternative gifts are tax deductible,
100% of your gift goes to the agencies, and you have honored your
friend, co-worker, or relative with a gift that will change lives!
