shop + donate = everyone wins
Forget Black Friday. Do your holiday shopping on Tuesday, December 2nd this year! If you've never been to 10,000 Villages, this is a great time to check it out; if you have, you know what a cool shopping experience it is.
Change the Truth is having a "party" at 10,000 Villages in Overland Park, Kansas on the 2nd. It's a shopping party; 15% of all sales that take place between the hours of 5 PM and 8 PM will be donated to our organization, directly benefitting the children at the orphanage.
What is 10,000 Villages?
"We market quality products from diverse cultures around the world made by people that we know and care enough about to do business in a manner that together we consider fair. We strive to operate as a business with a compassionate mission so that we can provide vital, fair income to artisans. Our dream is to one day see that all artisans in developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect and be able to live a life of quality."
The store overflows with beautiful, handcrafted merchandise ranging from folk art to ceramics, textiles, baskets, jewelry and musical instruments. We will also be selling some of our own Change the Truth items. Refreshments will be served.
Please join in the fun on Tuesday, December 2nd from 5 - 8. The store is located at 7947 Santa Fe Drive in old Overland Park, Kansas.
