Every year the month of October brings all sorts of household items in Pink. We've all seen the pink toasters, waffle ovens, light bulb packaging....
Since 2004 Carpet One Floor and Home has been supporting breast cancer research and awareness.
Every October Carpet One introduces Welcome Mats with the Pink Ribbon Symbol.
They run a contest where every day people can send in a design. Several of the designs are chosen and made into Welcome Mats. All of Carpet One Floor & Home’s welcome mats are stain-and-water resistant and machine-washable.
25% of each welcome mat sale helps The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), and the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) find a cure for breast cancer.
The mats are available year round at Carpet One Floor & Home stores for approximately $24.99US/$34.99CDN.
To date, the sale of Carpet One's pink ribbon welcome mats have raised more than $800,000 in the U.S and Canada.
C'mon and be your own Breast friend. Make that appointment for your mammogram.
If you know someone who is learning about breast cancer in the up-close and personal way, please leave me a comment with their name. On Pink Saturday October 30th, I will do a blog-roll of all the names so we can do a prayer circle. Strength in numbers, women helping women.
Every week our Pink Saturday hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound brings us all together to share our Pink. Thank you Beverly.
Thanks for visiting. Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
