marriott-logoCome one, come all to the IWG holiday bazaar! It’s time for our traditional charity bazaar to open the winter season. It’s a wonderful opportunity to browse some lovely handmade gifts, the majority of our vendors are IWG members and friends, and there are some very talented people. There will be something for everyone, from Poland and beyond – crafts, cards, jewelry, home goods, beauty and more…

bazaar

We are also calling all amateur (or professional) chefs and bakers! We welcome all your delicacies, why not share something from your home country? Or even try something new, and if you don’t have the time (or skills!) to make something, we are more than happy to accept purchased goods that we can re-sell.

And books! Have you ever glanced at your bookshelves and wondered what to do with books you’ve already enjoyed? Why not share them with us? We will be collecting books in any language, for all ages, you may donate them at our weekly coffee mornings, at small groups, or bring them on the day.

Back to the charity part — Your donations to the Food Court table and books are precious to us for many reasons, and a major one is charity. The profits of this year’s bake sale (and book table) will go to the Bread of Life charity, to cover our last student in the fourth and final year of her university studies, let’s give her the confidence and the final support she needs to finish her studies and start adult life. She’s almost there, let’s reach out our hand to her together.

If you would like to reserve a table, please contact us at iwg.warsaw@gmail.com for more information. Tables are limited so don’t delay!

One final word – we also accept craft donations to benefit the Bread of Life charity, if you are a knitter, artist or craft maker please consider donating something to the IWG table.
