Our weather, like for many others, has been crazy this year. We had a rainy and cool spring, a cool summer with only one or two dry spells, and autumn is turning out to be rainy and cooler as well. We spend a lot of time outdoors, and all this crazy weather has taken a toll on the mats in front of our doors. Not only does Luke track in mud from our walks, but we humans are in and out all day long, tracking in garden dirt, fallen leaves, feathers, and….well, imagine 39 free-ranging birds and you might guess all else that can be tracked into our home from the farm!
Disclosure: Wag ‘n Woof Pets received this welcome mat free of charge in exchange for sharing this campaign. We received no other compensation and all opinions are our own. We’re happy to support this project during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
We live in a long, mostly one-level house, and we have 5 doors that we go in and out of! This was the perfect time for us to get a nice, new doormat. We were excited to get another offer from Carpet One Floor & Home for a new pet-centric door mat, with the added bonus of sharing their support for the 5-star Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The BCRF is offering hope for a cure for this awful disease that afflicts not just 1 in 8 American women, but individuals everywhere around the world. BCRF is the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide and the highest rated breast cancer organization in the United States. Carpet One Home & Floor is partnering with them once again with five micro-collections of welcome mats to support their cause.
It was three years ago that we shared their Welcome A Cure collection for that year, and we still have that mat in use in our house! This year they have a collection of 22 bold and beautiful pink ribbon welcome mats, inspired by world culture, and 25% of the proceeds from their sales go the BCRF. There are two new pet designs this year as well, and the one we chose really says it all, we think.
You can see all the culturally diverse designs in their African, Asian, British, Mediterranean, and Scandinavian collections here: Welcome a Cure. While you are on their site, find your local Carpet One store to see where you can purchase one (on the top of that page). These mats are made in the USA, measure 2’ x 3’, and have a durable rubber backing. They sell for only $29.99 each. Here is a photo of the other pet-themed welcome mat:
Carpet One has also generously joined with us to offer our readers a chance to win one of these welcome mats for their home! Just fill out the Rafflecopter below to enter. The winner will have a choice of mats based on availability (you will make two choices from the mats shown below and get one of the two). It would be greatly appreciated (but not required) if the winner would share a photo of their pet with their mat on social media if possible to show their appreciation and help spread the word as well.
