Fabric supplier donates proceeds to cancer society

from a press release
Oct. 13, 2009--Greenhouse Fabrics is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness month in October by donating 10 percent of all sales from their July, August and October Sample Books and their new line of Web Exclusive fabrics to the American Cancer Society.
"This is a cause that is tremendously important to our customers and employees many of whom have been touched by this disease in some way," says Mike Bivins, president of Greenhouse Fabrics. "By offering this donation, we not only help an important cause, but also spur awareness to boost prevention of breast cancer."
Greenhouse Fabrics estimates it will raise more than $15,000 during the month of October. Daily updates to the total are available on the company's Web site www.GreenhouseFabrics.com.
The company's top 2,500 accounts received tote bags with pink ribbons sewn on them as a gift.
"We wanted to send a thank you gift to our customers that encouraged breast cancer awareness," notes Bivins. "The positive response has been so overwhelming that we made additional bags available for sale on our Web site to raise more money for the American Cancer Society."
Greenhouse Fabrics offers convenient same-day shipping on memos and a wide variety of sample books. Designers can also put together a portfolio of fabrics directly on GreenhouseFabrics.com to email to their own clients.
