Gifts from the Heart, or Alternative Christmas, was held on Saturday at First Presbyterian Church. The annual event allowed people to donate money to charities in honor of or in memory of someone versus buying a traditional Christmas gift. Ten Thousand Villages, a nonprofit fair trade organization with a store in Nashville, also participated for people who wanted to buy a tangible gift but still make a difference. Fair trade items directly benefit artisans in developing countries.
