Powered by Mom shares a Pink Ribbon Welcome Mats Review
Almost everyone has been affected by cancer, whether it was a family member, friend, friend of a friend or themselves. I myself lost my mom to cancer, she had cancer of the kidney and lost her battle when she was only 54 years old. To say that I’m passionate (like so many others) about finding a cure for cancer would e an understatement.
I appreciate and support 100% initiatives such as the Welcome-a-Cure has been doing for 10 years. Some of the statistics are must staggering!
In 2014, it was 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. Improvements and funds for breast cancer research are essential to preventing deaths, finding a cure and eradicating the disease for good.
I appreciate that 25% of the purchase price of each Pink Ribbon welcome mat sold through the Carpet One Floor & Home Welcomes Your Support Campaign 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. Not only are these Pink Ribbon Welcome Mats well made for both indoor and outdoor use, they are also made in the USA. There are several designs and colors, something to suit everyone and their home. Who would not want one of these wonderful mats welcoming guests and family into their home?
I received two of these fabulous mats and have both them at my front door. We have a double door entry way and with all of the pine needles and dirt that get track through my home between the people and the dogs one mat would not be enough. I was really thrilled to receive the Home/Hope one and a second one that is navy blue in color with a tan geometric design. They are both displayed proudly at my front door.
You can tell right away that both mats are well made, they have a dense rubber backing that makes them anti-slip and the mats themselves are easy to clean. I’ve just wiped them off with a damp cloth, more of a spot clean so far is all that they’ve needed. I love that there are also some pet themed mats along with so many other choices. I would find it hard to select just one as all the designs are very nice.
However besides how they look and how well they are made (which is important) I’m happy they are holding up to my rough and tumble family and they are a gentile reminder that even just by purchasing something we may need in our home we are supporting breast cancer research and funding.
These mats make for wonderful gifts to for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and well really any occasion as they support an important cause and they are a beautiful addition to our front door.
Supporting research has helped!
- 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
