This is a sponsored blog post; while the views expressed here are genuinely mine, consideration was paid to me by Vecco DIY Rug Décor to post this story.
I’m so excited to let you know about Vecco DIY Rug Décor and their partnership with some non-profit organizations. I’m always eager to share about neat products, charitable initiatives and chances to win, and today I get to do all three! Yes, you heard me; if you’re creative, crafty and live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Vecco DIY Rug Décor is inviting you and all Texans to show off what Texas pride means to you, all for a good cause.
So, here’s the neat product. If you haven’t heard of Vecco DIY Rug Décor before it’s a collection of sprays and stencils that help you create your own permanent rug design at home, all in a safe and fun way. You know how you’ve been looking for that “perfect” rug for your space, but just haven’t been able to find it? Well now you can make your own!
The charitable initiative is that four DFW non-profits (Dwell with Dignity, Dallas Area Fabric Artists, ArtLoveMagic and Groundwork Dallas) have participated in a special rug-making competition using Vecco DIY Rug Décor. They each received exclusive rug design kits and instructions to design a rug that illustrates what Texas Pride means to them. The organization whose rug receives the most votes will receive a $5,000 donation from Vecco to help support their cause.
And here’s how you can win! On Saturday, November 15th, you’re invited to join Vecco at the Valley View Mall to see the rugs in-person at the event, and for an afternoon of live music, local area food trucks and DIY fun for the whole family!
While you are at the event be one of the first 100 visitors and pick up a rug kit to create a rug that shows YOUR Texas Pride. Vecco designers will be on hand to provide instruction and tips to help bring your rug to life. When you’re done creating your rug, take a photo of your rug, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your contact info.
All rug submissions will be uploaded to Vecco’s Pinterest Page on a special Texas Pride board. Once it’s uploaded, share your rug with friends and family, and tell them to ‘like’ your rug photo to cast their vote for you, because the rug that receives the most likes will win $2,500!! Voting begins December 8th and ends on December 17th, 2014. The winner will be notified by Vecco by e-mail.
