Thanks to all who joined us
for the 26th Annual Wichita Alternative Gift Market on Nov. 14, 2020. We raised over $22,000—that’s a lot of food, medicine, educational supplies and more for our neighbors in need, in Wichita and around the world! Please save the date for Nov. 13, 2021. We are excited to announce that Hillside Christian Church will host the 2021 market event!

Alternative gifts honor family, friends, and colleagues and provide an alternative to our modern culture of consumerism.
Instead of buying candy for Aunt Sally, a shopper at this market might sponsor food for a pantry in the U.S. or purchase medicines for families in a developing country. Aunt Sally receives an attractive card telling her about this unique gift given in her honor. You also may choose to give her a hand-made ornament to represent the gift; complimentary ornaments handmade by volunteers, are a unique feature of the Wichita Alternative Gift Market.
Most of the gifts at such a market are available through the Alternative Gifts International annual catalog. The gifts offered in the “Gifts Inspiring Change” catalog are unique. They are gifts of peace and justice, gifts that are sustainable and that build security. These alternative gifts multiply and grow, sometimes exponentially, and offer hope and new life to people facing grave crises and need. They challenge the trivia of our modern culture. These are authentic gifts that people really use and cherish. They always fit and are never thrown away.
