If you’ve spent much time browsing our website, you’ve probably noticed that many of our rugs are collaborations with Native American artists. Because of our affinity and respect for their culture and causes, we look for small ways that we can give back when we find the opportunity. We’ve recently learned of a real need where a Native American family could benefit from our assistance. We’ve teamed up with American Dakota to offer a giveaway to help raise money for this cause. Please read below about how you can help a family in need and also win 2 free rugs!
Enter to win 2 rugs in any size. (NOTE: two 8x11s are a $1,400 value) We’ll even ship them to you for FREE. Keep one and give one away.
We’ve partnered with rug design company, American Dakota, and One Spirit (a charity that supports and assists Native American people) to help unite a Lakota family. A mother and father who are 2,000 miles from their reservation are awaiting heart surgery on their 8-month-old child who has gone to see a specialist after multiple complications have arisen. Our goal is the cover the travel expenses of transporting their 2 additional children (ages 2 and 3) to the hospital. This has already been a month-long affair and the family has never been apart before this. The parents really miss their other 2 children and wish they could all be together during this extremely difficult time. Once united, the family will stay at the Ronald McDonald house until the 8-month-old is well enough to return to their reservation in South Dakota.
How You Can Help:
We have organized this giveaway to help this family with their expenses. For every dollar you donate, you will receive a single entry for a chance to win 2 rugs of any size. The more you donate, the higher your chances are of winning.
We want to raise $2,000. The travel expenses are estimated at around $1,800 and the extra $200 can cover some food and any unknowns that arise. If we raise more than $2,000, we will help the family with medical expenses.
How To Donate To Win:
We have set up a donation portal that will go through One Spirit. Click the donate button below and enter the dollar amount you would like to contribute. You’ll receive 1 entry for every dollar donated to win. American Dakota will draw the winner in 5 days.
Total Raised: $1,357. Thank you to everyone that donated! This is really going to help out this amazing family. We’ll be notifying the winner.
