DALLAS–Next Monday, Nov. 18, Feizy Rugs will launch a Facebook campaign to benefit The Global Fund for Children, a nonprofit that finds and invests in grassroots organizations that serve the world’s most vulnerable children. For every new “like” received on Feizy’s Facebook page from Nov. 18-29, Feizy Rugs 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; to date, the company is well over half way to meeting its goal.
“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.”
The campaign is part of Feizy Rugs’ 40th anniversary celebration.
Helping street children, trafficked children, refugees, AIDS orphans and others, GFC provides grassroots organizations with financial resources, management training, capacity building and technical assistance to help them become sustainable and reach even more children in need. Since 1997, GFC 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.”
