Blinds Chalet Announces Window Blinds Line for Low-Income Families
May 17 2010
The statistics on poverty in the US are startling. According to the US Census Bureau, over 37 million people lived in poverty in 2007. Between 2000 and 2007 the number of those living in poverty increased by 6 million people. Even more startling is that 37% of households headed by women with children lived in poverty.
While installing window treatments isn’t going to end the amount of poverty in America, window treatments offer a sense of privacy to families as well as helping to insulate homes and apartments against the sun and cold. Window treatments reduce energy bills, reducing the need for air conditioning and heat. Blinds Chalet is launching a window treatment line of blinds under $30.00.
These blinds include models such as discount faux wood blinds and discount mini blinds. Both the Embassy 1” Mini blinds and the Classic Aluminum Mini-blinds are priced at just over $13.00 each. “Every family has the right to privacy,” says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet. “Our goal in offering discount mini-blinds is to allow families a sense of dignity and a little extra protection against the elements. We all deserve that.”
55% of children in low-income families have at least one parent who works full-time year round, reports the National Center for Children in Poverty. With the economic crisis of the past few years, it’s gotten harder and harder for families to make ends meet. Simple comforts such as home furnishings are often sacrificed in order to keep a roof over a family’s head.
While love is free, parents want to provide their children with food, furniture and a home to live in - a place where they can feel secure. Sometimes being able to close a window blind to shut out the world is enough to get someone through another day.
