I was giddy with excitement all day when I received a Madison & Mulholland’s 2016 Awards Season Gift Bag and discovered a multitude of products that award show nominees enjoy.
For 15 years the Madison and Mulholland team work with clients who have interesting and exceptional products to provide elegant swag bags to celebrities, journalists, actors, producers, and directors. The hope is that these influencers have the ability to use and display these products in their blogs, Instagram, Twitter, film & tv productions.
Madison and Mulholland hires a team of dedicated developmentally challenged adults who pack their gift bags. They also gives back to those in need, by raising money for over 70 charities that includes the NoreenFraserFoundation.org. Noreen’s organization raises funds for research into women’s cancer.
