October 3, 2016 — Gift for Life, the gift, stationery and home decor industries’ sole charitable organization, has received a donation of $5,000 from Archipelago Botanicals, the home fragrance, bath and body products supplier, through an exclusive cause marketing program conducted during the 2016 tradeshow season.

Archipelago Botanicals partnered with Gift for Life to donate a portion of sales of its Perennials Collection during 2016 wholesale markets. The Perennials Collection consists of five floral blends: Gardenia, Hyacinth, Jasmine, Lavender and Sweet Pea – all poured using a premium wax blend in a white glass jar candle and adorned in a floral box with a simple button closure.

Frank Joens, Gift for Life chair, added, “We are grateful to Archipelago for its partnership during the 2016 tradeshow season and hope that others will be inspired to participate in the same way. Gift for Life’s Cause Marketing Program is an easy, and effective way for gift, stationery and home décor suppliers to support our efforts to unite the industry against HIV/AIDS. .”
