Something that I can certainly enjoy seeing every year would be Carpet One’s Pink Ribbon Welcome A Cure Welcome Mats.
Pink Ribbon Welcome A Cure Welcome Mats
Every year Carpet One comes out with a collection of welcome mats in support of breast cancer research.
This year’s collection of Pink Ribbon Welcome A Cure welcome mats feature contributions from interior designers, as well as rising star graphic designers. I love that the designs also include popular favorites for pet lovers and gardeners.
About these mats that are of high quality.
Carpet One Floor & Home’s exclusive Pink Ribbon welcome mats are machine washable, backed with rubber and capable for use both indoors and out. Each mat is made in the USA and proudly marked with a pink ribbon, the internationally recognized symbol for breast cancer awareness.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The mission of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. BCRF is a fiscally responsible, independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and is the only breast cancer organization in the U.S. with an “A+” from CharityWatch and four star rating from Charity Navigator.
The mats retail for $24.99 ($34.99 CDN).
For every mat sold, 25 percent of the proceeds directly support the five-star rated Breast Cancer Research Fund. To date, the company has raised almost $1 million from mat sales.
You can see the mats and learn more on the Carpet One Website.
The 2017 pink ribbon mat collection features 18 designs, including interior design experts Melissa Davis and Lisa Mende, who pull from their personal experience to create dramatic, impactful mats that fit any home decor. In addition, graphic design artist Justin Niederkorn, a senior designer for an international non-profit agency, tapped his artistic talent and love for the women in his life, to create a mat that graphically tells the important story of a breast exam. Mikayla Chandler, a Savannah College of Art & Design advertising and illustration sophomore, created a powerful image of lines that seem almost inter-connected, and resemble the shape of a breast, swoop of a cup and wisps of hair. The two graphic designers have created edgy and thought-provoking artwork that add to the fashionable and functional collection.
