For my signature mat, I've complimented my signature pink with black and white polka dot motif with butterflies
Manchester, NH (Vocus) November 17, 2010
When looking for a special gift this holiday season, look no further than Carpet One Floor & Home’s collection of pink ribbon welcome mats. The Carpet One Floor & Home Welcomes Your Support campaign has been supporting breast cancer research since 2004 with exclusively designed welcome mats. This year’s collection features ten all new designs that are sure to delight anyone on a gift list this year.
Each welcome mat sale helps The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), and the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) find a cure for breast cancer. The indoor/outdoor welcome mats are each emblazoned with a pink ribbon to remind us of those near and dear who have battled with breast cancer. Twenty-five percent of the sales of these mats will be donated to BCRF in the US and CCS in Canada.
All of Carpet One Floor & Home’s welcome mats are stain-and-water resistant, machine-washable, and made in America. These inspiring pink ribbon welcome mats will add a special touch to a doorway for special occasions or every day. In addition to adding a little style to the doorway, they are also very practical. Having a mat at every doorway can keep the interior of the house cleaner and actually protect floors by trapping dirt from your shoes before it makes it in the house and onto floors. These no-slip rubber-backed mats also make great additions to kitchens and bathrooms!
In addition to the ten exclusive designs, the collection also features two signature designs – one inspired by designer Glen Peloso, and one by Julie Edelman, The Accidental Housewife. Peloso’s trendy houndstooth design and Edelman’s inspiring butterflies are exciting additions to this year’s collection of pink ribbon mats.
“For my signature mat, I’ve complimented my signature pink with black and white polka dot motif with butterflies,” says Julie Edelman, The Accidental Housewife. “Butterflies for me have always symbolized life’s journey of highs, lows and patience particularly when unexpected transitions or turmoil come our way and we discover that life’s detours can actually leave us stronger and more beautiful—inside and out!”
“When given the opportunity to design one of Carpet One Floor & Home’s pink ribbon welcome mats, I wanted to create something both useful and stylish as a way to support the cause,” says Glen Peloso of Glen Peloso Interiors. “You’ll be seeing houndstooth in the fall and winter fashion collections and it’s a perfect accent for a stylish home.”
Carpet One Floor & Home has been supporting breast cancer research and awareness since 2004, and to date, their pink ribbon welcome mats have raised more than $800,000 in the U.S and Canada. This money raised over the past six years has been donated to worthy organizations that are continually searching for a cure.
“The Carpet One Floor & Home Welcomes Your Support campaign has given us the opportunity to support worthy organizations searching for a cure for breast cancer,” says Terri Daniels, Vice President of Public Relations for Carpet One Floor & Home. “We are excited to offer a great gift idea to our customers and also support a cause we believe in.”
