Textile Manufacturer and Charitable Outreach Organization Blanket America Adds Customizable Curtains to Its Extensive Selection of Blankets, Bedding, and Other Linens


Blanket America, a textile manufacturer and charitable outreach organization, added customizable curtains to its selection of fleece blankets, cotton sheet sets, and other items available for sale as part of its “Buy 1, Give 1” charity model.

New York, NY, March 31, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Textile manufacturer and charitable outreach organization Blanket America now makes customizable curtains as well as blankets, sheet sets, and other bedding. Available at http://www.BlanketAmerica.com, the customizable sheets are an affordable alternative to professionally fitted window treatments.

Currently there are two customizable curtain sets available on http://www.BlanketAmerica.com: the Cameroon Window Solution and the Charlotte Window Solution. The former is a deep golden hue and the latter is a lighter gold color. The standard size is 28" x 48" but the customizable curtains are also available in the 48" x 84" range. An accompanying instructional video details how to assemble and hang the window treatments. The Cameroon Window Solutions and Charlotte Window Solutions retail at $80 but are sold for $29.99 on Blanket America’s website.

"Fitted window treatments can be quite expensive and a hassle to maintain. Since Blanket America is the manufacturer, all of our products - from fleece blankets to customizable curtains - are available at extremely low prices. Traditional custom curtains are much more expensive," said Mesh Geldman, founder of Blanket America.

Blanket America was created by the owners of a leading textile manufacturer to major retailers such as Macy’s and JC Penney’s. The company has one main tenet: if given the appropriate opportunity, people will want to help their neighbors. With this concept in mind, Blanket America pioneered the "Buy 1, Give 1" charity donation model. The old adage that "charity starts at home" is the basis of its giving policy. For every item purchased off of http://www.BlanketAmerica.com or its microsite http://www.BlanketAmericaGives.com, the company donates a blanket.

This transparent giving policy offers the consumer reassurance that 100% of the donation is going to the appropriate destination: a neighbor in need. The tangible product of the donation, a blanket, is evidence that the customer has made a positive difference. Blanket America has recently been going from state to state, "blanketing" communities in need, and documenting the experience. Trucks have been touring the country, visiting states nominated by residents on http://www.BlanketAmericaGives.com and handing out blankets to those who need them.

The organization’s website offers a large selection of items available for purchase, from woven blankets to beach towels. BlanketAmerica.com also includes an "About Us" page that explains Blanket’s America’s history and purpose. Visit the Media page to learn more about Blanket America’s coverage in the press, including being featured on NBC, CNN, NPR, and the BBC. For people looking to make a difference without buying any products, the site also includes a "Give Directly" section. Here, individuals may donate one or three blankets directly through Blanket America. They can also give directly to charity through Gifts In Kind International, a company that works with businesses to put them in contact with non-profit organizations.
