A Drop in the Bucket
Posted: 07/27/2011 @ 10:47 AM in Corporate,News,Uncategorized
“Almost one billion people on our planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us,” said Tom O’Connor, Jr., chairman and CEO of Mohawk. “charity: water is taking giant strides every day to lower this number and Mohawk’s efforts will help them bring more clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.”
This is the first time that all of Mohawk’s business units are concentrating their efforts to raise awareness and funds for the same non-profit organization.
Both Pinhole Press and Felt and Wire Shop have launched new lines of limited edition printed products designed around charity: water’s signature Jerry can. These include exclusive photo books, pads, desk calendars and personal stationery. A significant portion of the proceeds for these items will go directly to charity: water .
MohawkPaperStore.com  will provide customers with an option to donate $5, $10, $15 or $20 to charity: water at checkout, and a robust employee fundraising effort called “A Drop in the Bucket” is underway at all of Mohawk’s corporate and manufacturing facilities. Donations from employees will be matched dollar for dollar by corporate.
100% of all donations to charity: water go directly to funding water projects in the field. To simplify the donations process and to receive a direct tax receipt from the organization, general cash donations from anyone can also be made at a Mohawk-specific page on the charity: water site.
“Mohawk  has been a long-time supporter of charity: water and we’re excited to expand this partnership into a multi-tiered fundraising campaign across the various Mohawk offerings. One of the most important tasks at charity: water is to maintain a strong, design-driven brand that elevates the importance of our mission. Mohawk  understands the impact of compelling design to inspire their customers to engage and give back,” said Viktoria Harrison, creative director for charity: water.
