Welcome to our Marketplace. The Greeks called it the “agora” (Ἀγορά), a gathering place where merchants kept their shops and sold their wares.  As we are coming close to having 2000 partners we wanted a way to feature the “wares” of our partners. Many of these partners are owners of companies or are artists, writers, filmmakers and individuals who offer services. The Charter wanted a way to promote their good works. We invite you to browse through our Marketplace. If you find a vendor who piques your interest, click on the link that is provided and take a closer look and explore the possibilities. Each of these stalls is paying a modest fee to be featured in our agora. Help our partners as you help the Charter.  If you want quicker access to products and services you can click on one of the following links to be directed to a particular category:
