Arlington, VA Gifts That Give Hope Fair


 Shop with Purpose: Gifts That Give Hope 2017

We put a new spin on gift-giving. The concept is simple: Make a donation to one of our locally-based nonprofits, personalize a Gifts That Give Hope greeting card for a loved one, and give that act of kindness as a gift. Thanks to our generous shoppers, children with special needs are getting new books, a homeless shelter is getting fresh blankets, orphans in Haiti are getting formula, and dozens of other acts of kindness are happening around the world in 2018.

Come linger at our expanded Children's Fair! 
  • A wintery performance from the Yorktown Dance Team at 2 p.m.
  • Holiday crafts
  • Face-painting
  • Sensory activities at our new Skill Builders pop-up shop
  • Four Coder Kids' Mac workstations to code a Minecraft Mod

Lastly, don't forget to bring your Kindness Challege calendar to get a gold star on our all-star walk!
