Revolution Announces Partnership With Savvy Giving By Design
May 25, 2018
KINGS MOUNTAIN, NC — Revolution Performance Fabrics has announced a partnership with Savvy Giving by Design, a non-profit organization that performs free interior decorating to families with a child facing a medical crisis. Savvy Giving was founded in 2014 by Susan Wintersteen, after a young girl in her community was diagnosed with cancer. Wanting to use her interior design skills to help the child, Susan worked with her community and multiple subcontractors to create a new bedroom that would serve as a comfortable retreat from the difficult treatment the child was about to endure. Since then, Savvy Giving has evolved into a larger charity that has redesigned over thirty-six homes for families in similar situations. This year, they plan to establish six new local chapters across the country, with hopefully even more in the years to come through building a coalition of designers and raising awareness of their organization. Revolution Performance Fabrics first learned of Savvy Giving after the charity had purchased fabric through their online store. However, after learning more about the organization’s mission, they decided to take a more involved role. “At Revolution Fabrics we have always done our charitable giving locally in North Carolina, but we have been interested in teaming up with a national charity that aligns with our company values,” says Revolution CEO Sean Gibbons. “Savvy Giving allows us to help people that need environmentally safe and sustainable textiles. What Susan and her affiliates are doing is truly amazing and we are so honored to be a part.” As a result of this new partnership, Revolution will be donating fabrics to all Savvy Giving by Design projects. As with all Revolution products, these fabrics will be free of environmentally hazardous perfluorinated chemicals, a point of pride for the family-owned textile mill.
