SPRING GROVE, IL - JULY 25, 2011 - Chosen to participate in the Shop With Meaning's July Summer Sale, Blanket Statements is one of several participating companies who engage in a form of transaction-based giving. (www.shopwithmeaning.org).
Shop With Meaning's company overview states that they highlight one product that generates a donation with each purchase every day.
