8th Annual Gifts That Give Hope

December 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm EST

Shop for a good cause! At Gifts That Give Hope, we put a new spin on gift-giving. The concept is simple: Make a donation to one of our 17 locally-based nonprofits, personalize a GTGH greeting card for a loved one, and give that act of kindness as a gift. Thanks to our generous shoppers, children with special needs are getting new books, a homeless shelter is getting fresh blankets, orphans in Haiti are getting formula, and dozens of other acts of kindness are happening.

Enjoy multicultural dance performances! Rhythmaya Dance performs at 11am and Hālau OʻAulani takes the stage at 1pm. Enjoy hands-on coding demos from Coder Kids, face-painting, a sensory friendly Children’s Fair from Skill Builders, and an opportunity to support our wonderful nonprofits.
