Shop for a Cause, Shop Palestine. As part of our work to aid Palestinian children and families, the Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) buys and sells Palestinian crafts and goods to support the talented craftspeople in Palestine, help them generate income, and protect their way of life. Read more about the Palestinian Artisans. Additional proceeds from sale of these items will be used to support our programs in Palestine.Closely connected to Shop Palestine is an annual Palestinian Craft Bazaar in Berkeley, California. Joining Hands, a Bay Area women's solidarity group, began organizing these bazaars 16 years ago as a way to provide practical support for Palestine and continues to co-organize the annual bazaars each December with MECA. Please join the Shop Palestine mailing list to get updates about products available online as well as notices for bazaars and special sales in the Bay Area.
