Review for International Folk Art Alliance, Santa Fe, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The International Folk Art Alliance is the most amazing non-profit organization I have ever been involved with. The Alliance helps folk artists all over the world sustain their craft, become self-sufficient, market their beautiful work and create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities. The cornerstone of our organization is a market which is held each July in Santa Fe, New Mexico, to which over 20,000 people come over a period of three days to see and buy art from artists from all over the world. At the end of the market, 90% of the proceeds of the sales are sent home with the artists. Last year, our artists sold over $3 million in arts and crafts! For many of these wonderful artists, the money they take home to their communities truly provides life-changing opportunities: for medical care, for education, for clean water, for housing. We are making a difference in people's lives!
