The Alternative Holiday Gift Market is a long First UU tradition! In partnership with Alternative Gifts International, we have selected 12 compelling global and US causes for you to “shop” among as alternative/extra gifts of conscience this holiday season. On two successive Sundays, Dec 3 & 10, you can browse among the displays of urgent, poignant and powerful causes that are carefully vetted/managed by AGI. Your charitable donation can be designated in honor of a friend or family member. You’ll receive a beautiful description of the cause and a Gift Holiday Card of your choice at check out, Cash, Checks, and Credit Cards taken. Give a gift that will have a profound effect on a person/family in need and will be a radical act of kindness! Tables will also be hosted by Reading Ready Pittsburgh, Khasi Hills and Valley Clean Air. Volunteers are needed for set up, hosting, etc. Contact Karen Burns Rutigliano ( to learn more and to help joyfully!
