Need to do some holiday gift shopping in Lisbon? Avoid the malls, browse unique products and support a great cause! Head over to the Xmas Creative Market, 8-10 December at Pátio da Galé in Terreiro do Paço. More than 120 local designers and artisans are selling everything from fashion and jewelry, ceramics and artworks, to toys and gourmet foods. And, best of all, proceeds go to the Red Cross of Portugal.
In addition to the gift market, a food plaza is planned to quench shoppers’ appetites and thirsts with homemade snack, tapas, Portuguese wines and artisanal beers.
The aim of the Red Cross of Portugal (Cruz Vermelha Portuguesa) is to “prevent and alleviate human suffering in all circumstances, to protect life and health, to promote respect for the human person, and to foster understanding, cooperation and lasting peace among peoples.” Undertaking this mission, the Red Cross does not distinguish nationalities, races, social conditions, religious or political beliefs, striving exclusively to help all individuals.
