Christmas with a Cause is a global market where people can buy unique and inspiring Christmas presents with proceeds going to help fund humanitarian work locally and around the world.

It all began when a group of us asked the question on how can we best promote non-profit organizations that are working so hard to support and empower men, women and children throughout the world. We all know that we will buy Christmas gifts for our family and friends. But what would it look like if the gifts that we purchased helped to support these organizations and people locally and globally?

We currently have 22 participants whose proceeds will help individuals in Africa, South America, Cambodia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Malawi, Honduras, Swaziland, Hong Kong, Ethiopia, Haiti, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and right here in Iowa!  Their products are as varied as the non-profits that they represent. Handbags, paintings, leather bags, coffee, crochet and knit items, baskets, pottery, batiks, baked goods, wooden signage, mugs, and much more will be showcased.  Admission is free. Please note that not all participants accept credit cards.

We strongly believe that this will be an enriching experience to purchase beautiful items and gain an understanding of what is happening throughout the world to help those in need.

So join us on Nov. 9 and 10 at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church!
