PAMBE Ghana’s Global Market at Scissortail Park: A Fun Way To Shop For Mother’s Day

Catch PAMBE Ghana’s Global Market on Friday, May 7, at The Night Market at Scissortail Park.

This is a great chance to shop in person at OKC’s beloved fair-trade market – just in time for Mother’s Day and summer birthdays. The Night Market will be open from 5:30 to 9:30. Celebrate spring, explore the park and shop the Global Market’s unusual, colorful and fun selection of fair-trade items.

Your Global Market purchases do a world of good, all over the world. Every item is certified fair-trade, from the stunning handmade copper bells and wind chimes from India to the felted wool birdhouses from Nepal. Global Market proceeds support PAMBE Ghana’s grade school in underserved northern Ghana, enabling almost 300 children to attend school each year and opening doors to their futures.

This will be the Global Market’s first in-person market in more than a year. Seasonal specialties include a three-piece garden tool set and terra cotta animal pots planted with locally-grown herbs, which make lovely gifts for all gardeners. Other gifts for friends and family include hand-woven ties from Guatemala; wooden toys, puzzles, and musical instruments; baskets of all shapes, sizes, and colors from around the world; kitchen tools, towels and bowls.

Make May 7 your night to explore PAMBE Ghana’s Global Market at The Night Market at Scissortail Park!

A New Tax Deduction for You!

Yes, you can get a new tax deduction for making a contribution to a charity.  You can make a contribution up $300 and still write it off - without itemizing deductions.  You can still take your standard deduction AND get a $300 deduction under the CARES ACT for COVID relief.

Even better, if you are 70.5 or older, you can make a contribution directly out of your IRA for any amount (up to $100,000) without paying any taxes on it. 

Yes, you can do both! You could donate $1,000 from your IRA (70.5 and older) and $300 (no age limits) from your checking account and get the tax savings from both.

 


Did you know?

PAMBE Ghana’s teachers presently earn less than those who serve at Ghanaian Education Service (“GES”) schools and La’Angum Learning Center risks losing Montessori trained teachers to the GES. Thanks to the generosity of the Liddell Foundation and Mother Huggers, PAMBE Ghana will begin to implement its long-time plan of responsibly raising teacher salaries. Please join Mother Huggers by making a tax deductible donation to support increased teacher compensation.
