Impoverished families that are on assisted living programs cannot afford to buy oriental rugs themselves. A new rug provides warmth, comfort and a safe area for children to play instead of a cold dirty floor.

Spokane, WA (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

Rugs are more than a decorative piece of furniture. Rugs can actually change lives. Kirishian Oriental Rugs believes it can change the lives of women who have been in trouble due to domestic violence, being homeless, or other troubling incidents and are working towards rebuilding their familys lives. Programs like Transitions provides a Transitional Living Center which gives homeless women and children apartments to live in for up to 24 months, creating stability in their families lives while they get back on their feet. In 2013, 31 families with 73 children were served at TLC and in 2014 there could be even more. Utilizing the power of crowdsourcing, Kirishian Oriental Rugs has launched a fundraising campaign on starting July 14th to help these families in need. Raised funds will go toward providing these women and their children with new rugs which will provide a basic home furnishing need that also symbolizes hope and a new beginning as they start over.
