EVENT DATE: Jan 12, 2017
As part of the ongoing effort to find treatments and cures for diseases such as cancer and diabetes, AmericasMart and Home Accents Today will once again present Home for Hope: A Day of Giving during the January Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market to benefit California-based cancer and diabetes research hospital City of Hope.
Set for Thursday, Jan. 12, this home accents industry-wide Day of Giving will allow participating exhibitors the opportunity to dedicate a percentage of sales, a set dollar amount per order, or a flat donation to support the facility’s research.
The benefits to you? As part of your sponsorship, your company’s name will be included in marketing and editorial coverage of the effort (both prior to the market, in the live-at-market Home Accents Today dailies and in post-show editorial and social media efforts). For a minimum $500 donation, you will also receive window clings and buttons for your showroom and staff. You will be able to tell customers about your participation and encourage them to place their orders on that day to maximize the (tax-deductible) contribution, which will incentivize early order-writing for supporting organizations.
Our inaugural effort in 2016 raised more than $27,000 for this worthy cause. We know 2017 will be even stronger as we continue to band together as a single industry to make our impact even more meaningful. Please donate or pledge today to join the effort!
