Enduring Treasures Help the Needy in Chaotic Times

In a chaotic time when the true meaning of "value" is increasingly being questioned, a local entity is taking the message of substance to the nearby streets—literally! Nature Gallery, in existence for 21 years, is hosting a benefit for healthcare of the homeless.
Amidst the amber, fossils, museum-quality mineral specimens and the distinctive jewelry and gift items created from them, visitors to Nature Gallery will have 10% of their December 14 purchases donated to Opportunity Health Center of Palo Alto.
(Please visit
The Gallery, a local institution where kids and teachers and families visit, as do others from across the nation, is described as "Like a museum where you can take "cool stuff" home, if you want."
On display are richly varied treasures from the heart of the Earth, to delight eyes and hearts of visitors. And whenever something departs for a visitor's home, its value—from 50 cents to thousands—is definitely rock solid!
Nature Gallery enthusiastically encourages all its Holiday Shoppers to purchase on December 14 so that the local needy will receive the maximum benefit from their patronage.
Nature Gallery is located at 87 Town and Country Village, in Palo Alto, at the corner of El Camino Real and Embarcadero Road. The Gallery is open 7 days a week.
