The Alternative Christmas Market (ACM) reclaims the true Christmas narrative by bringing together over 20 non-profit organizations that address All Saints Peace & Justice initiatives on the local, national and international fronts. Make donations to the organizations and receive unique greeting cards to give as gifts, or purchase socially conscious and fair trade items form a variety of vendors. The ACM has raised between $25,000 to $35,000 annually for these organizations and has raised our social conscientiousness even more.
For this year’s ACM co-chairs — Sharyn and Carmen — it is a true labor of love. This year marks Carmen’s 5th and Sharyn’s 12th year with the market.
Carmen: At the time I was asked to be co chair I didn’t realize that the ACM was such a blessing to our All Saints family and the participating organizations. I’m excited to once again be part of the team that helps bring this wonderful event to All Saints.
Sharyn: I love the warm and festive atmosphere of the All Saints’ and organizations’ volunteers. The ACM has become a real touchstone for me, I have shown up years when it was all fun and I’ve shown up when life’s been most challenging, only to have support and miracles materialize to lift me up.
Here is the catalogue for this year’s market — which promises to be one of the best ever! Ready. Set. SHOP!
Sunday, December 4 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in Sweetland Hall.
