At Alternative Gift Markets, the gifts help alleviate poverty and disease, or promote education and sustainable development. Instead of traditional gifts like chocolates, flowers, or jewelry, shoppers can buy a gift that supports humanitarian projects.  On The Point, Mindy Todd talks about this season’s Alternative Gift Markets in our area, where you can purchase food for Haitian children, or a solar oven for a rural village in Uganda. Guests Jane Jackson, Christine Michelson, Paige Roth, and Shelia Place share information on the Alternative Gift Markets for the Upper Cape, Barnstable, and Fairhaven.
