The idea has caught on and The Palestinian Cultural Center (PCC), a centre that works to raise funds and send to Palestine, is having a souq. The souq is similar in style to the AID Gaza Souq that ran a couple of weekends ago (or was it last weekend?). The will be selling various items from food to table cloths, runners, cushions, ornaments, accessories… etc. They will also sell items donated by you the public in a garage sale.

 

So if you have anything around the house you don’t need, don’t want, or can spare and it is in good condition then donate to them. All donations and proceeds will go to Aiding Gaza in its huge reconstruction efforts.

 

When: February 3rd but please send your donations before then.

Time: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Where: The PCC in Rabieh

Contact info: 06 551 47 51

 

The struggle is not over and emergency relief is only part of the battle. Help Gaza today donate your items and go shop at the souq. Make a difference in someone else’s life!

I got this in my inbox recently and I thought it will be helpful to those in Jordan. I do not have contact info so try the website in the poster or go to the event on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=54389778063

 

 

Souq Gaza on Sat 17th from 10am – 3pm.

Souq for Gaza: People have been calling and asking

How they can help and what they can donate?

So here’s an initial response

 

First, it’s easiest to start with what will NOT sell  

Please do NOT donate clothes / shoes  / blankets etc we cannot handle it at the souq

 

What will sell, what should you donate?

The best GUIDELINE is: Would YOU buy it?  Would someone you know buy it?

 

After discussions here’s a list of things we think might sell and that YOU might donate  We will group them to sell:

·         Unwanted gifts / Handcrafts  (JD5 upwards)

·         Books:  recent, interesting (JD2 upwards)

·         Movies / Music CDs DVDs ¡V but NOT pirated please  

·         Food:  Bottles / tins  /jars / packets  (eg local olive oil)  (JD3 upwards )

·         Cakes, cookies ¡V homemade for our coffee shop

·         Household goods / used but still desirable: pots, dishes, pans, vases, framed pictures, lamps

 

We will try to get the most money possible for your item. So give us a guideline price. At the end of the day, whatever is not sold, we will sort and decide: what to keep for the next sale (there will be a re-launch of souq soon we hope) and what to hand over to Entity Green Training for recycling.

 

Tasks you can take on

  • Walking round the souq collecting money in buckets
  • Running the raffle / tombola
  • Helping us pack up the souq at the end of the day (3:00- 4.30)
  • Organizing your friends and YOU run a stall

 

Institutions

If you work for an institution, then please mobilize ¡V you have huge networks of influence. Get you staff to run a stall: treat it as a team-building, management training exercise.
