Shop with Purpose came to be with the idea of combining a passion for supporting small businesses while fundraising for the community in 2019. Our first small business market was held in Orangeville with over 30 vendors in attendance. Since that first day we have grown to add social events in addition to our small business markets. We have popped up in multiple towns and venues over the years and have raised over $16,000 for various causes. 2022 brings a new fundraising idea for the With Purpose Family and we have started the #spreadkindnesswithpurpose initiative. All our events and markets will see a portion of fees collected pooled to spread kindness to those in our community through different projects.
