How do I get sharpies marks off my white carpet?

I usually keep markers in a box up high, but I forgot to put the box away today. I came out of the bathroom a few minutes ago and found my toddler drawing in our white carpet with all the black sharpies. How do I get that stain out?

SPOT SHOT IT GETS ANYTHING OUT OF CARPETS, EVEN NAIL POLISH. ALSO ALCOHOL REMOVES INK.

I use a product called "Spot Shot". It's alcohol based. Following the directions and step on the spot with your shoe, paper towels on spot. When working on the spot, work towards the center otherwise the stain will spread. If you are in HI, I will be glad to help. Let me know.
