Looking for the perfect gift this holiday season? Kirkland Interfaith Network (KIN) invites you to its annual Alternative Gift Fair, Saturday, November 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, November 10, from noon to 2 p.m, at Holy Family Catholic Church, 7045 120th Avenue NE, Kirkland (a new location this year).  The KIN Alternative Gift Fair is a holiday fair where each gift you buy provides a better life for someone who needs it, here or abroad. It’s a fair where you can do some holiday shopping and feel good about doing it.

At the fair, you will find tables selling "alternative" gifts. An alternative gift is a donation made to an organization in honor of a person to whom you might normally give a material gift. An alternative gift might be a flock of chicks for a family in Bolivia, a window for a unit of affordable housing, or a blanket to warm a refugee in a camp. For each item you purchase, you receive a gift card with an insert describing your gift, which you can give to the person you are honoring in this way.

In addition, at the KIN Alternative Gift Fair, you will also find a large selection of fair-trade items imported from the developing world.  And you will know that all the items you purchase benefit someone who needs a helping hand.For more information about KIN and to donate online, visit
