GoodWeave for a Good Cause
For the second year in a row, Custom Cool is raffling off one of its custom rugs to one lucky person, with all proceeds going to GoodWeave, an organization devoted to ending child labor and exploitation in the rug industries of Nepal, India, and Afghanistan. Since its founding, GoodWeave has reduced the number of “carpet kids” from one million to around 250,000 and provided educational opportunities to nearly 11,000 children.
You can help children, too, and have a chance to win this gorgeous rug by buying raffle tickets here or by calling GoodWeave at (202) 234-9050. The 8’ by 10’ wool, nettle, and silk rug is entitled “Summer Ikat,” and it is (of course) GoodWeave certified. For more information on GoodWeave, how to find GoodWeave certified rugs, and other ways to donate (as well as stories of the carpet kids whose lives have been transformed) check out theGoodWeave website.
