Every $10 Serves a Meal and Saves a Job ›
Gift for Life was founded by Peter Schauben of Appleman Schauben in 1992 in response to the tragic loss of industry lives to AIDS. The organization's first meeting at the National Stationery Show brought together a cross-section of the industry's leading publishers, market centers, sales reps, manufacturers and retailers - all willing to convene and work together towards a common goal.

Since that time, Gift for Life has raised nearly $6 million for AIDS research, education, treatment and care through nationwide at-market events, cause marketing programs and direct donations. With COVID-19 temporarily causing cancelation of in-person events at industry markets, Gift for Life has pivoted towards online digital events for the balance of 2021, with a specific emphasis on COVID-related food insecurity. Adam Glassman, creative director of Oprah Daily, serves as Gift for Life's 2021 honorary chair and spokesperson.
