Dec 21, 2015

Gift for Life, the home and gift industries' nationwide charity, raised almost $8,000 for DIFFA via a holiday pop-up store that ran December 2 to 6 in New York. Dozens of industry suppliers and designers contributed product for the sale. The store concept was created by students from the Fashion Institute of Technology and LIM College, as part of an annual "Iron Design" Student Challenge hosted by the Retail Design Institute.
