Giving flowers to give back – How you can help support families in need
From spreading feelings of joy and happiness, to helping a loved one feel better when they are sick, to making a house feel like a home, we could go on and on about the numerous benefits of sending and receiving flowers. With the long-awaited arrival of summer, graduations, Best Friends Day, and wedding season upon us, June is the perfect time to surprise your favourite people with the beauty of flowers (p.s. sending flowers to yourself is always a good idea too!). And now, thanks to a special partnership between Bloomen and the Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) Toronto Young Professionals Committee to celebrate RMHC Toronto’s 40th anniversary, sending flowers is also a way to support a great local cause and help seriously ill children and their families during a challenging time.
How does it work?
From June 1-15, up to five per cent of all Bloomen sales will go directly to RMHC Toronto. Plus, Bloomen will be providing a convenient donation option for customers at checkout allowing you the option to provide support with an additional donation to RMHC Toronto.
