Mark your calendar for Thursday, November 17 and the annual Fairhaven Gives Back event. Wild Whatcom is one of the non-profit recipients again this year so make your list and plan to shop Fairhaven November 17th!
How does it work? Well, when you're doing your holiday shopping this year, don't just pay; pay it forward! That's the message of Fairhaven Gives Back
Fairhaven Gives Back helps holiday shoppers support local businesses as well as their favorite local nonprofits with each purchase they make. It's a brilliantly simple idea: When shoppers make a purchase at participating Fairhaven businesses or restaurants, 10 percent of the sale is donated by that business to the nonprofit of the shopper's choosing from a list of Whatcom County nonprofits.
Since the event was first launched in 2013, Fairhaven Gives Back has raised more than $3,500 for local nonprofits. Help make 2016 the best year yet!
Simply come to Fairhaven and look for the "Fairhaven Gives Back" sign in the windows and doors of participating merchants. When you make a purchase you'll be handed a form with local non-profits from which to pick your favorite. 10% of your purchase at each participating shop you patronize will be donated to the nonprofit you select from the list provided.
