Paseo Nuevo, Santa Barbara
In honor of International Women's Day CozDrvn is hosting a Pure Purpose Market at Paseo Nuevo in Santa Barbara. Pure Purpose is a different kind of Pop-up Market. Our mission is to spread the news that there is power in purpose-driven shopping. The vendors participating in the market either have social impact built into their model or have agreed to contribute a percentage of their sales to a community non-profit organization. In solidarity with women everywhere, Santa Barbara women's organizations will be represented at the market. Come learn what they are doing and what you can do to lift up women in our community and globally!
