New York, NY, January 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Online woven blankets retailer and charitable organization Blanket America, located at http://www.BlanketAmerica.com, just announced its new, limited-time $5 flat shipping rate. The organization, renowned for its BUY 1, GIVE 1 policy that ensures one American blanket is donated to the needy for every blanket purchased, is seeking to benefit consumers and further awareness of its mission through the new shipping policy.
“As the deep January chill sets in and winter looks like it’s here to stay, it’s clear that people need warm and well-made blankets now more than ever. Our new $5 shipping flat-rate will benefit consumers who are looking to choose from among our extensive selection of blankets and throws, but it will also help to further our charitable efforts. The more blankets that are purchased, the more blankets we can provide to needy people in communities across America, and the more awareness we can raise about domestic poverty,” said founder of Blanket America Mesh Gelman.
Blanket America’s woven and fleece blankets are sourced and produced along guidelines that seek to include and benefit local communities, and its BUY 1, GIVE 1 charitable efforts adhere to its good neighbor philosophy. Alongside the blankets that are donated to needy and impoverished members of communities around the United States, Blanket America also launched its CHOOSE HAITI initiative in response to the country's devastating earthquake of 2010. Featuring necklaces and bracelets made of recycled bottles, magazines, and newspapers from the streets of Port-au-Prince, the colorful products are all handcrafted by Haitian artisans.
In addition to its CHOOSE HAITI products, Blanket America offers a wide selection of blankets and throws, as well as bedding ranging from sheet sets to down comforters. Its Neebo Dot Twin XL three-piece cotton sheet set is now discounted to $11, and is available in seven different colors. Many of Blanket America’s comforter sets are also discounted from their initial prices, including its classic Dobby Stripe three-piece comforter set, discounted to $89.99 from its previous price of $120. Including one comforter and two matching shams, the Dobby Stripe comforter set comes in five different colors and features subtle, elegant woven stripes in the fabric.
For those looking to cuddle on the couch with a mug of cocoa in hand, Blanket America’s Cable Knit Throw is toasty warm and well-suited for frigid mid-winter evenings. With a texture and look that resembles an extra-soft sweater, the Cable Knit throw comes in five different colors that ensure it will match various decoration schemes. Purchases of blankets, bedding, towels, and CHOOSE HAITI products are all eligible to receive the limited-time $5 flat-rate shipping deal, and all textiles purchased will trigger American blanket donations under the BUY 1, GIVE 1 campaign.
