Saint Paul's Episcopal Church in Fayetteville held its 11th annual 'Alternative Gift Market' Sunday afternoon.
Non-profit organizations from all across northwest Arkansas gathered under one roof , allowing people to donate to their favorite causes.
Those gifts of giving are expected to make a difference in the lives of others.
"People come here to choose the organizations they like and they make the donation in honor of a loved one or a co-worker, a friends, versus going and buying them another object to fill their house with," says Melissa Swann, committee member.
The church has hosted more object-based markets in the past, but this time around -- it was all about paying it forward.
