The Extraordinary Oddities market is all about making a difference in our community.
We strive to positively impact the lives of our local artisans and our valued shoppers who are looking for unique products. But we don’t stop there…..
A portion of all of our market vendor fees will be distributed evenly between 4 charities that The Extraordinary Oddities market truly believes in.
We believe it is important to make a difference in the lives of Cancer patients and through “Tushfest” a licensed and registered fundraising society, there main goal is to raise money to purchase parking passes for patients and family members at the Cross Cancer Institute, Patients receiving treatments, sometimes daily, or family visiting a patient.. the parking fees are a cost and burden nobody needs during times being tough.
The Centre for Arts & Music (C.A.M. program) focus’s on youth at risk in our community who would otherwise have few opportunities to participate in the arts. There goal is to reach them during critical after school hours through music. At CAM, children learn how to write songs, play instruments and perform together on stage. In the process, they earn self esteem, respect for themselves and others, and much needed self confidence.
Donations are vital to the success of this program as most of the youth that participate in CAM do not have the financial means to participate.
