Also, this year we want that LOVE rules and not mass consumption because we don’t like how Christmas has become a holiday of intense materialism, superficial gift-exchanging & feasting and less about family gatherings, hope and giving back.
If you also think it’s time to put an end to the mindless consumerism, then join our “Give a Present Christmas Market” @ Zarah on December 14th.
Get special gifts such as self-made jewelry, skincare products, cards & illustrations, wool scarves, hand-carved cinnamon ornaments, Tibetan candies and many other special DIY handicrafts and support local businesses at the same time.
If you are advocating a totally gift-free Christmas, then still come and don’t buy any presents but “give” presents to children in need. Also, this year we will collect gifts under our beautiful Christmas Tree which will be sent to the Beijing-based NGO “Migrant Children Foundation” (MCF) that aims to help disadvantaged children from migrant workers’ families in Beijing.
