Why the name "Forward Fig"? We believe in giving back to our community, so we “Pay It Forward”, AND we are unique and can grown and adapt in any environment..like a fig!
How do we "Pay it Forward"? We will give to the charity of your choice and ask other vendors to do the same. At your event, you will have an extra favor that says, “In honor of Mr. & Mrs. Smith or XYZ Corporation, a donation was made by the following vendors.”
