Gift For Life shares Fine Lines raises more than $11,000

Gift for Life announced that a January fundraiser spearheaded by Matthew Katzenson, CEO of Fine Lines sales agency and Gift For Life immediate past chair, raised $11,000+ for World Central Kitchen (WCK).

“I have been a long-time board member of Gift for Life, and a strong supporter of World Central Kitchen, an incredible organization which is always first to the frontlines,” said Katzenson. “WCK provides meals in response to humanitarian, climate and community crises, building resilient food systems with locally-led solutions, whether in Haiti, Greece, Tahoe or Kentucky.”

With an initial goal of $5,000, Katzenson pledged to donate $1 to WCK for every order Fine Lines wrote in January. The fundraiser grew exponentially, following Katzenson’s invitation to his vendors to join the effort by donating $1 for each order written by Fine Lines. The successful community effort expanded even further with outreach to agency partners and support from Just Got 2 Have It! and Sugar B Sales.

To date, Fine Lines and the agency’s sales representatives have raised $11,507 during the January 2022 Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Seattle Markets with the help of the following vendors and agencies:

  • Denik
  • Designworks Collective
  • Enewton
  • Homesick Candles
  • Infinite She
  • Jellycat
  • Just Got 2 Have It!
  • K Hall Studio
  • Meri Meri
  • Poppy Handcrafted Popcorn
  • Rock Scissor Paper
  • Skeem Design
  • Sugar B Sales – Seattle

“We appreciate Matt’s passion and his creativity in developing easy ways to engage our industry in fundraising for World Central Kitchen,” said Cole Daugherty, Gift for Life chair. “We invite other buyers and sellers in the industry to follow Matt’s lead by launching their own initiatives.”
