Manchester, NH (PRWEB) September 29, 2016
Carpet One Floor & Home releases their annual collection of pink ribbon welcome mats under the Carpet One Welcomes Your Support campaign. Established in 2004, the campaign has raised nearly 1 million dollars for various breast cancer research charities and organizations by donating 25% of each welcome mat sale. This year, Carpet One continues to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF).
“By partnering with the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the world, Carpet One Floor & Home is funding the world’s most innovative research” states Myra Biblowit, President & CEO of BCRF. “Every hour of research funded, improves outcomes and saves lives.”
Since 1993, BCRF-funded investigators have been involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer research.
Carpet One Floor & Home’s latest mat collection features an exclusive assortment of designer mats by guest contributors including interior designer and design blogger, Lisa Mende; interior designer, Traci Zeller; HGTV designer, Melissa Davis; and celebrity interior designer, Kelli Ellis. With looks ranging from trendy geometric patterns to seasonally-inspired designs, the complete 20-piece collection offers customers a wide variety of styles to choose from.
Pink ribbon welcome mats are made in the U.S., and each design is marked by a pink ribbon as a reminder of the cause. Constructed with a durable rubber backing and stain-and-water resistant materials, the mats are fit for both indoor and outdoor use and are machine-washable.
“Each year, our team truly looks forward to designing a new collection of pink ribbon welcome mats,” said Terri Daniels, Vice President of Public Relations for Carpet One Floor & Home. “What begins as a fun, creative process, ends as a significant contribution toward the fight against breast cancer.”
Pink ribbon welcome mats are available year-round at participating Carpet One Floor & Home stores and retail for approximately $24.99US/$34.99CDN. To learn more about the campaign and view the latest welcome mat designs, visit Carpet One Welcomes Your Support.
