Carpet One Floor & Home has just released their newest collection of pink ribbon welcome mats to support breast cancer research. The Carpet One Welcomes Your Support campaign has been raising funds to support organizations and researchers searching for a cure since 2004. The collection includes 11 new mat designs.
Twenty-five percent of each sale will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). BCRF is the only “A+” rated breast cancer organization in the U.S; 91 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to 240 researchers around the globe that support BCRF’s mission to eradicate breast cancer.
Each mat is made in the USA complete with a sturdy rubber backing and a pink ribbon to remind people of the cause each mat stands behind. All of Carpet One Floor & Home’s welcome mats are stain-and-water resistant and machine-washable.
“Our pink ribbon welcome mats have helped raise valuable funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation,” said Terri Daniels, Vice President of Public Relations for Carpet One Floor & Home. “The work BCRF researchers are doing is extremely impactful.”
Although they are most commonly used as welcome mats, Carpet One Floor & Home’s pink ribbon welcome mats are great both indoors and out in many places. Whether it’s protecting the floor under pet food dishes or in front of the kitchen sink, these mats are versatile throughout the home.
“Our partnership with Carpet One is a great example of how a staple product, a welcome mat that can be found in any home, can make a big difference,” said Myra Biblowit, President & CEO of BCRF. “BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S.—you can rest assured that funds raised through Carpet One are making a direct impact on research.”
In their traditional use as welcome mats, Carpet One Floor & Home’s pink ribbon mats help keep floors clean by trapping dirt before it makes its way into a home to cause more stains. Carpet One Floor & Home’s mats are designed for the entryway as well as other areas of the home – kitchen, bath and more.
Pink ribbon welcome mats are available year round at Carpet One Floor & Home stores for approximately $24.99US/$34.99CDN. These inspiring pink ribbon mats make great gifts and add a special touch to a home.
