Welcome a Cure Pink Ribbon Mat
Carpet One Floor & Home has just released the 2016 collection of pink ribbon welcome mats to support breast cancer research, with 19 new mats that are stylish, humorous or whimsical to marry with any home design preference. The Carpet One Welcomes Your Support campaign has been raising funds to support organizations and researchers searching for a cure since 2004 and has raised almost one million dollars so far.
Lending their talent to the initiative are Kelli Ellis, author of the book Do I look skinny in this house?; Lisa Mende, one of Charlotte’s Top 10 Interior Designers of 2015; Traci Zeller whose work has been featured in magazines such as Traditional Home, Better Homes and Gardens, Cottages and Bungalows and Southern Cottage, and Melissa Davis, Art Director and Series Designer for HGTV’s award-winning series Income Property.
“Breast cancer has touched so many of us,” observed Ms. Ellis. “Anything I can do to get us one step closer to a cure, create awareness and keep the women we have lost close to our hearts is important to me.”
Twenty-five percent of each sale will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). 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, and measure 2’ by 3’.
“Our pink ribbon welcome mats have raised almost a million dollars for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation,” said Terri Daniels, Vice President of Public Relations for Carpet One Floor & Home. “Together with our stores and our customers, we’re working to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.”
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, but the versatile designs add color and protection to any area of the house, including foyers, kitchens, baths, pet areas 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.
