The Oscars are upon us once again and celebrities will be gifted with high end products of all sorts, many which they already familiar with and already own. All of the gift suites choose a wonderful charity to help as well but Kim Kreiss and Patryjca Siewert-Towns founded ALIVE! Green Expo Green Pavilion/Mix Media Luxury Lounge, the ORIGINAL green gifting suite, and Project Green a few years later in order to build a brand and raise money for an unending cause. When they’re not catering to the likes of Hollywood their mission is in play around the country whether it’s a health and wellness expo or local event in their hometown of Atlanta. Going green, giving back, going green giving back, it’s a fabulous cycle; gifting green is simply a bonus several times a year.
