Believe it or not, we are only 12 weeks away from Christmas. I always say I am going to start my holiday shopping early, but this year I am truly going to make it happen. A great way to do so is at the Junior League of Kansas City's annual Holiday Mart.
This year the Holiday Mart will be held downtown at Bartle Hall October 20th-23rd. Each year the Junior League organizes this event which brings in over 200 vendors selling everything from home decor, health and beauty products, specialty foods and clothing and accessories for Men, Women and Children.
The best part is, the money you spend shopping will go back to a fabulous cause. The Junior League of K.C. gives back approximately .85 cents to every dollar raised to support the League's missions, programs and community impact projects; which is currently focusing on Children's fitness and nutrition. Last year they raised over $660,000!
This year, the Junior League of K.C. is partnering with multiple agencies to provide volunteers or funding:
- Children's Mercy Hospital
- Kansas City Academy
- KU Medical Center
- The Shadow Buddies Foundation
- Young Survival Coalition Kansas City
- Girls on the Run of Johnson County
- Kansas City Community Gardens
- Operation Breakthrough
- Variety Children's Charity of Greater Kansas City
