According to Woodland Park-based Yobel Market founder Sarah Ray, ending the global water crisis would cost about $10 billion, 1/45 of what Americans will spend on Christmas presents this year.
Ray, who travels to Northern Uganda to purchase fair-trade items like jewelry and chocolate, will host the second annual Adam's Mountain Holiday Bazaar at Adam's Mountain Café (934 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs, yobelmarket.com) from 3 to 8 p.m. today in an attempt to promote conscious consuming. Several other sustainability-minded local vendors will be on hand alongside wine tastings, live music and more.
Another chance to spend your holiday dollars in a way that positively impacts others will come today from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at Stargazers Theatre (10 S. Parkside Drive, 209-8888), with a Holiday Craft and Decoration Fundraising Sale. The Indy Give! event benefits the Club of Arts, a local nonprofit that provides visual and performance art education opportunities for people with disabilities. Club of Arts students handcrafted all decorations for sale. Visit cstcoa.org to learn more about how your purchase proceeds will be used. — Matthew Schniper
