Gift For Life & NSS Team-Up for AIDS Walk

Gift for Life, the gift, stationery and home decor industries’ leading charitable organization, has partnered with the National Stationery Show (NSS) to participate in AIDS Walk New York, a charity fundraiser in New York City’s Central Park on Sunday, May 20 (opening day of the Show). The Gift For Life/NSS team will recruit walkers and raise funds for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The Gift For Life/NSS team will walk 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) through Central Park and across New York City’s Upper West Side. At the conclusion of the official route, the team will “go the extra mile,” finishing the walk at New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, where the NSS runs through Wednesday, May 23.

“The National Stationery Show is delighted to partner with Gift For Life to support AIDS Walk New York,” said Patti Stracher, general manager of the NSS. “The event’s overlap with the NSS’s opening day offers members of the social stationery industry a unique opportunity to support this important cause – whether as walkers along the course or as donors from the exhibit floor.”

Industry members and friends are invited to join the Gift For Life/NSS team as both walkers and as donors. AIDS Walk New York begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 20.

Since 1986, AIDS Walk New York has raised more than $122 million for HIV programs and services in the tri-state area, and has grown into the largest AIDS fundraising event in the world. In 2011 alone, 45,000 participants, many of whom were members of more than 3,000 corporate and community teams, raised more than $6.2 million for GMHC (Gay Mens Health Crisis) and 50 other tri-state area AIDS service organizations.
