Feizy donates $20,000 to Global Fund for Children

Money to help families in developing nations

During the holiday season, rug manufacturer Feizy donated to The Global Fund for Children, helping provide for families in developing nations – many of which contribute to the global rug industry.

In some countries, one child out of every four is involved in some form of dangerous labor. As part of an ongoing commitment to ending these practices in partnership with The Global Fund for Children, Feizy donated $20,000.

“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,” said Leah Feizy, principal. “Together with our amazing customers who made this gift possible, we can help to build a brighter future for children around the world.”

Known for its worldwide efforts to find, fund and grow grassroots groups involved with serving the needs of the world’s most marginalized children, The Global Fund for Children focuses on empowering groups that not only address many of the root causes of child labor, but also scouts, supports and strengthens those working to end child trafficking and those committed to creating equal opportunities for children living on the edges of society.

”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,” said Susan Goodell, GFC’s CEO. “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.”
