“Childhood is a moment in our lives when we can be truly happy, when our hearts are free to roam and we learn to love and share.  It is a tragedy to rob a child of this brief moment in time by subjecting them to the burden of forced manual labor. Simply stated, if it were not for Goodweave, we could not be in the carpet making business.”
