What can we do differently that would help people in need around the world?

Alternative Gifts International (AGI), started 35 years ago with a mission to teach children about the broader value of giving back. An inspired youth ministry director and a group of children is where it all began. Harriet Prichard, AGI Founder, asked a simple question: “What can we do differently that would help people in need around the world?” The response was the birth of a creative and meaningful way to gift, which would transform lives on every continent. We continue the mission and more than ever, we need your help. Our dedicated volunteers and market hosts are key players in helping us deliver aid to the poorest of the poor. Our small staff works hard to build a catalog of Causes each year, and your gift of any amount is needed and appreciated.
