One Year Anniversary for Giving Gifts & Co. + Blue Heart Campaign

Giving Gifts & Co is turning one!
Help us Celebrate this incredible milestone by stopping by the co-op boutique (4570 Main Street & 30th Avenue):

When: Saturday, April 5th, from 11 am - 8 pm

What: Food, Beverages, Live Music and Tons of Sales throughout the whole store!

Why: All in support of our HUGE 'Traffic against Trafficking' Campaign. For every person who visits the store for the ENTIRE MONTH OF APRIL, we'll donate $1 to Somaly-Mam, an organization to help women in Cambodia escape Human Trafficking and re-build lives as artists & entrepreneurs.

We are donating all proceeds from our limited edition ORCAS candles (with a blue heart vessel) to support the campaign. Which is befitting, because we're decoraitng the store with wooden hearts, and for every $100 raised, we will paint one heart blue! In other words - if you buy the candle at the store, $100 will be donated to Somaly-Mam, to support her cause against human trafficking in Cambodia.

Economists have elaborated the economics of gift-giving into the notion of a gift economy. By extension the term gift can refer to anything that makes the other happier or less sad, especially as a favour, including forgiveness and kindness. Giving gifts are also first and foremost presented on occasions - birthdays and Christmas being the main examples.
