Nourison social media campaign targets diabetes

Manufacturer hopes to ‘pull rug out from under' disease

SADDLE BROOK, N.J. — Every new "like" or follower on Nourison's Facebook and Twitter pages in January means more money is going to combat diabetes.

The rug and home décor manufacturer announced the social media donation campaign to help fund the research efforts of the Diabetes Research Institute. Beginning Jan. 2, Nourison will donate $1 to the DRI for every new "like" or follower on the Facebook and/or Twitter pages through the end of the month. There will also be a chance to win a rug and pillow coordinate set.

"Nourison and the Peykar family have been strong supporters of the Diabetes Research Institute for a long time," said Thomas Itty, marketing director of Nourison. "Our goal is to raise awareness and highlight the significant progress of organizations such as the DRI."

"This is a wonderful opportunity to expand what it means to have a voice for a cause by utilizing social media," added Brooke Feldman, digital marketing coordinator of Nourison. "DRI and our team are very excited to collaborate on posts to make this informational and fun for each of our followers."
