October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and all around the country, we can see an outpouring of support and generosity to help fund research so we can get rid of breast cancer for good! One of the ways that Carpet One is helping this year is by selling the Welcome-a-Cure Welcome Mats, which will provide 25% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Fund. There are mats available in several styles so you can find whatever suits your personality and decor! Learn more about how Carpet One helps stomp out breast cancer.
Each year, it is expected that over 250,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and nearly 40,000 of those women will die. Improvements and funds for breast cancer research are essential to preventing deaths, finding a cure and eradicating the disease for good. 25% of the purchase price of each pink ribbon welcome mat sold through the Carpet One Floor & Home Welcome-A-Cure initiative is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. So far, the campaign has raised nearly 1 million dollars for a variety of breast cancer research charities. Purchasing a welcome mat contributes directly to raising funds for breast cancer research and hopes for finding a cure.
The question is: Are you more Modern – Daring Deco Chic or Classic Evergreen? Maybe you like a look of Farmhouse and Home Sweet Home or have a flair for Boho with our World Peace carpet? Whatever your style, each 2’x3’, rubber-backed, US-made welcome mat is $29.95, with 25% of the proceeds funding BCRF’s research programs.
This year, Carpet One designers have created 20 welcome mats with four themes – Farmhouse, Modern, Classic and Bohemian available at participating Carpet One Floor & Home stores, the largest locally and family owned flooring store co-op in North America.
As I browsed through the different designs available, I loved seeing so many to choose from whether I wanted something that showed my love for pets, for modern decor, soft colors, or nature. With 20 different mats to pick from, I found several that I thought would work well around my home while also helping me to support the Breast Cancer Research Fund.
Welcome mats aren’t just for the front door either! I have one at my front door of course, but I also have one placed on the front porch where I drink my coffee and enjoy my morning devotional so my feet aren’t cold on the concrete. Then I have another by the back door where I keep my shoes that I wear in the yard when I take the dogs out! What a fun way to add some color and design to your living space while also helping donate funds to the Breast Cancer Research Fund with Carpet One!
I appreciate that the back of these mats are lined with rubber, so they aren’t slipping and sliding around while I’m trying to wipe my shoes on them. Plus, they are easy to clean with the hose and maybe some light scrubbing if the dirt and grime are worked into the prints. Plus they are made in the US so you’re supporting working Americans while also helping to stomp out breast cancer. These are not only great for your home but also for the office or as gifts for a housewarming or during the holidays.
