The rug brand Feizy donated $20,000 to The Global Fund for Children over the 2016 holiday season. The nonprofit partners with grassroots groups that address, among other issues, child labor and child trafficking.
“It is estimated that more than 215 million children worldwide are engaged in some form of child labor, and as a family business, we are committed to helping and protecting these children,” says Leah Feizy, principal at Feizy. “Together with our amazing customers who made this gift possible, we can help to build a brighter future for children around the world.” Feizy is headquartered in Dallas, and was founded in 1973 by CEO John Feizy.
“The Global Fund for Children is honored to partner with Feizy Rugs, and we are so grateful to their customers for inspiring this generous holiday gift,” says Susan Goodell, CEO at GFC. “With your support, GFC is ensuring that children around the world receive the care and education they need to break the cycle of poverty and reach their potential.”
