Celebrate Giving Tuesday with Gifts that Truly Give Back: HandCrafting Justice Holiday Fundraiser on December 3rd

With the nationally recognized movement #GivingTuesday gearing up for its December 3rd day celebrating charitable giving, New York City-based organization HandCrafting Justice is offering the unique opportunity to give and get on every nonprofit’s and philanthropist’s new favorite holiday. On Giving Tuesday, join other ethical enthusiasts at the AOL headquarters in Manhattan for an evening of holiday shopping with gifts that give back to over 6,000 women artisans across 20 developing countries.

HandCrafting Justices’ event on December 3rd at the AOL headquarters offers a great way to give (and get!) during the busy shopping season and to encourage charitable giving as a way to meaningfully celebrate the holidays. Join us on Giving Tuesday by shopping ethical handmade products including accessories, décor, toys and indigenous art. Proceeds of the event go to scaling up HCJ’s operations by giving more women access to meaningful, empowering work. Tickets for sale available at: https://handcraftingjusticeholiday.eventbrite.com
