Gift for Life, the gift, stationery and home decor industries’ leading charitable organization, announced today that the Gift For Life/National Stationery Show team raised more than $28,300 for men, women, and families who are living with HIV/AIDS.  With a generous $5,000 matching grant from DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS), the team is just shy of its $30,000 target, and last year’s total.  Additional donations will be accepted through June 10 at https://ny.aidswalk.net/gflnss2016.

This year marked the fifth consecutive cooperation of Gift for Life and the National Stationery Show to participate in the AIDS Walk NY, which takes place in New York City on Opening Day of the National Stationery Show. One small, but mighty team walked the 10K route through Central Park and the other conducted a “virtual walk” through the Javits Center aisles in support of Gay Mens’ Health Crisis (GMHC), beneficiary of AIDS Walk NY. Currently, the team is ranked 14th overall in team fundraising, and the 2016 AIDS Walk NY – which was the 31th annual event – has raised a collective $4,500,0000 for the cause.
