Local retailer supports breast cancer research with welcome mat proceeds
GAINESVILLE - Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home has recently released twelve all new welcome mat designs for its 2012 pink ribbon welcome mats collection to support breast cancer research.
The Carpet One Welcomes Your Support campaign was established in 2004 and has been raising funds through the sales of pink ribbon welcome mats to support organizations searching for a cure. This year’s collection features twelve new designs that make any doorstep a display of support for breast cancer awareness and research in any season.
Each welcome mat sale helps The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in support of research all over the world in the search for a cure for breast cancer. Twenty-five percent of the sale price of these mats will be donated to BCRF. Along with other Carpet One Floor & Home stores throughout the U.S. and Canada, Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home has raised more than $850,000 for breast cancer charities through the Carpet One Floor & Home Welcomes Your Support campaign.
”Breast cancer has affected all our lives in some way or another,” said Mike Blanton of Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home. “It is important to us that we do our part in finding a cure.”
The indoor/outdoor welcome mats include a pink ribbon to serve as a reminder of the cause they support but the designs are focused on the joyful side of life – from designs representing each of the seasons to a fun holiday pattern, nature and even a nautical inspired welcome mat.
“Without partners like Carpet One Floor & Home we would not be able to support the hundreds of researchers every year that put their heart and soul into finding a cure,” said Myra J. Biblowit, President, BCRF. “We put over 90 cents of every dollar donated into critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide.”
The entire collection of pink ribbon welcome mats is available year round at Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home for $24.99.
