On December 14th, 2014, CEED hosted a successful fundraiser featuring locally made gifts for the holiday season.
More than twenty community artisans and crafters sold their goods at this event located at Southpoint Acupuncture inside Plaza Verde at 1510 East Lake Street, Minneapolis.
In addition to a variety of local, sustainable, and handmade goods for sale such as jewelry, textiles and art, CEED held a silent auction, enjoy tasty baked goods, and provide space for community building and education.
A list of participating vendors can be found at the event’s facebook page: http://tinyurl.com/ope5juh.
More than $1000 in proceeds earned will benefit “Responding Together: Community Emergency Preparedness Event” to be held in April 2015.
The April event is spearheaded by the Zenteotl Project and the Center for Earth, Energy and Democracy and will offer communities of color and low income at-risk families opportunities to access information, resources, and trainings on emergency and disaster preparedness, in addition to learning about the effects of climate change and environmental harms.
