As this year comes to a close, we want to thank everyone who has supported the Ten Thousand Villages events throughout the year!
Because of your purchases and donations this year, we know that the Ten Thousand Villages international artisans and their families will have a much happier holiday season and a better future. And, because of your purchases and donations, we now have the matching funds to apply for our grant to open a permanent store in 2018. We are so grateful for all of you — volunteers, people who hauled things from one sale to another, buyers, folks who donated for the new store, people who helped set up and take down displays — all of you made this happen. As we move forward into the new year, and start our search for the right spot for our store, we hope you have a joyous and bright holiday season, and that the new year brings you and your family love, peace, friendship, and happiness.
