The Spring 2008 Carpet One Floor & Home Welcomes Your Support Campaign will reach a cumulative total of over $630,000 in donated funds for breast cancer research and awareness since its inception in 2004.

"To know that Carpet One Floor & Home has raised over half a million dollars through the sale of pink ribbon welcome mats for such an important cause," says Eric Demaree, President of Carpet One Floor & Home, "makes me very proud. Our families, friends, customers, and communities are affected by this cause. It is an honor to join the BCRF and the CCS each fall and spring in their mission to eliminate this disease."

"Carpet One Floor & Home's ongoing support of BCRF has been inspiring," says Myra Biblowit, BCRF President. "They are dedicated to this cause, and maintaining partnerships with strong, socially responsible organizations like theirs allows us to continue our fight to raise funds for breast cancer research and awareness in hopes of eradicating this disease within our lifetime."

"Carpet One Floor & Home is doing a great job of demonstrating what it means to be a responsible company," says Dr. Barbara Whylie, CEO, Canadian Cancer Society. "Ongoing support keeps our momentum and efforts moving forward so we can continue to educate women about breast cancer, and with this momentum, we will continue the search for a cure."

Extremely durable, stain-and water-resistant, and machine-washable, Carpet One Floor & Home's 2008 spring-and-summer-themed mats make perfect gifts.

The welcome mats are available from April through June at Carpet One Floor & Home stores for approximately $21.99 USD each. Twenty-five percent of the sale of each welcome mat will go to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the U.S. and the Canadian Cancer Society in Canada.

Lauder as an independent, not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to funding innovative clinical and genetic research. The Foundation supports scientists at top universities and academic medical centers worldwide, conducting the most advanced and promising breast cancer research that will lead to prevention and a cure in our lifetime.

A minimum of 85 cents of each dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to breast cancer research and awareness programs. In October 2007, over $32 million was awarded to more than 150 researchers across the U.S. and in Canada, Latin America, the Middle East, and throughout Europe.
