COLUMBIA, S.C., March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Warm your heart and your home with a "Rug For A Reason," a stylish way to update your home or office while helping to make hopes and dreams come true for Special Olympics athletes in SC and GA.
Paul Prince has masterfully woven together his personal passion for Special Olympics and his professional expertise as the owner of "Door To Door Floors" to create Rugs For A Reason, an organization that donates 80 percent of the proceeds from the purchase of exquisitely designed area rugs that subtly showcase the Special Olympics logo in an extremely tasteful and fashionable manner, made exclusively by world renowned Shaw Living. There are three area rug designs to choose from, each available in three sizes that are perfect for any home or office, to add a touch of elegance to any room.
Rugs For a Reason is a pilot campaign designed to support the South Carolina and Georgia programs of Special Olympics with hopes to "roll out" nationwide once the project takes off.
Rugs For a Reason is not your typical fundraising program. Here are just a couple of "Reasons" why this effort is unique. It contributes an amazing 80 percent of area rug proceeds to Special Olympics South Carolina and Georgia, and it supports local jobs. This exclusive line of Special Olympics inspired, woven area rugs is made in the USA by Shaw Industries, the largest carpet and flooring manufacturer in the world, who employs thousands of our neighbors at its facilities in South Carolina and Georgia.
Paul Prince, the visionary behind Rugs For A Reason, has volunteered and financially supported Special Olympics for almost a decade. But, Paul wished to do more; he weaved together his personal passion and his professional expertise by teaming up with Shaw Living to carry on the Special Olympics' vision, to change the way people with intellectual disabilities are treated and to give them opportunities beyond the Special Olympics medal podium by creating Rugs For A Reason.
