Industry leaders raised a glass to Gift for Life’s 30th anniversary during a Gift and Home Trade Association reception on July 14 at the Atlanta Market. Since its founding in 1992, the all-volunteer organization has motivated the gift and home industries to donate more than $6 million in connection with at-market events, cause marketing initiatives and direct donations, according to a news release.
Special recognition was given to Peter Schauben, Gift for Life founder, for his passion and tenacity in bringing the industry together to raise funds initially for HIV/AIDS research, education, treatment and education.
This summer, the organization is raising funds for crisis-related hunger relief and World Central Kitchen, a charitable organization founded by celebrity chef José Andrés.
