Feizy Rugs Facebook campaign to benefit vulnerable children
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, November 13, 2013
Dallas - Fans of Feizy Rugs can do their part to help at-risk children simply by logging onto Facebook.
From Nov. 18 to Nov. 29, for every "like" Feizy receives on its Facebook page, the rug manufacturer will donate $1 to The Global Fund for Children. The company has pledged to donate at least $40,000 to GFC from April 2013 through April 2014 and says it's well over halfway to meeting its goal.
The campaign is part of Feizy's 40th anniversary celebration.
The Global Fund for Children scouts and invests in innovative grassroots organizations that serve the world's most vulnerable children: street children, trafficked children, refugees and AIDS orphans. GFC provides these organizations with financial resources, management training, capacity building and technical assistance to help them become sustainable and reach more children in need.
"We are inspired by the mission of The Global Fund for Children and are excited to reach the children who need us most through our partnership," said Leah Feizy, executive vice president of Feizy Rugs. "We're so excited to introduce our clients to this great organization's work and donate to GFC on their behalf, and look forward to a successful campaign."
Since 1997, the fund has invested more than $30 million in more than 575 grassroots organizations in 78 countries.
"We are thrilled to partner with such a philanthropic company and are so honored to be the recipient of their 40th anniversary campaign," said Victoria Dunning, executive vice president of GFC. "With their partnership, we will multiply our impact and most importantly improve the lives of more vulnerable children."
