Review for Mercy Corps, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mercy Corps is the first charity my husband and I donate to in the event of any global crisis or disaster. They are usually on the ground before any other agencies, probably because they are already "in country". We became aware of Mercy Corps because they are based in Portland, Oregon and have a well-deserved reputation for excellent management paired with amazing empathy. Their staff is very helpful in supplying materials to aid in Alternative Gift Fairs, promptly and at no charge. Their gift cards for 2010 were distinctive, conveying their messages of hope with colorful pictures & catchy wording.

Role:  Volunteer & I have only dealt with Mercy Corps as a donor and volunteer trying to raise awareness of this remarkable organization.

Review for Alternative Gift Markets, Inc., Lucerne Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have coordinated an Alternative Gift Fair at my church with a friend whose sister has been involved in Alternative Gift Fairs for many years. Alternative Gifts International was brought to our attention as a link to many charities we might not have heard about but whose missions fit our criteria. The support both verbally and with materials was outstanding! The wide array of charities in their catalogue was amazing; we were able to choose ones that were perfect fits with our criteria and at prices that made them affordable in our area which is still recovering from the recession. We would heartily recommend working with this organization.
