Welcome a Cure Pink Ribbon Mat- the Gift That Gives BACK!

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this product/giveaway, free of charge, from Carpet One Floor & Home, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

Did you know? 
- One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
- Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.
- Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die.
- 1 in every 1,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
n 2014, it is expected that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and nearly 40,000 of those women will die. 
- Breast cancer doesn’t limit itself to October, and neither does the need for funding research.

The Good News:
- Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, in part due to better screening and early detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment options.
- Right now there are nearly 3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
- When detected and treated early, 5-year relative survival for localized breast cancer is 98.5

For the past ten years,  Carpet One Floor & Home has raised almost a million dollars to support breast cancer research from the sales of each Welcome Mat they sale (25 percent of the proceeds go to research).  

This year, the company has partnered with 12 well-known interior design experts, like Karl Lohnes, Meredith Heron and Lisa Mende, all of whom have added their flare for color and home fashion to the mix of beautifully designed and durable indoor-outdoor mats for this year! .You can check out all 12 of the designer made designs on their webpage (3 are shown above and to the right, along with 3 of the other designs). You can get more the 411 on the designer's inspiration, and learn more about them on the Beautiful Design Made Simple

We were sent the lovely Dogwood Mat to review. As you can see the mats are a really good size (2' x 3'), and really make a statement to your friends and family! Each mat features a sturdy rubber backing and a pink ribbon to remind people of the cause it supports. All welcome mats are stain and water resistant, machine washable, made in the USA, and they are suitable for indoor or outdoor use.  As you can see somebody claimed it as soon as I laid it out!
