For Mothers Day Or Any Day-Flowers For A Cause
So, here we go again into one of the busiest flower buying times of the year, and with it comes the pocket lining of billions for the big, foreign, conglomerates who supply the flower buying outlets online and off, chain & grocery stores and every gas station and street corner you see. These same corporate, conglomerates who continue to force our American farms out of business, fund foreign countries, and ruin the environments around the globe with their practices. And the human side? Sweat shop labor is not only in the clothing industry and not only in China.
How about something better; why not do some good for something good instead. If you have an animal adoring or tree hugging Mother or you…adore animals & trees; I invite you to visit my Flowers For A Cause online section for some very unique flower arrangements I have created in honor of the planet and its animals. I donate all the profits (yes, I really do) back to the various organizations that help them. What better way to honor your Mother than with a one-of-a-kind flower creation of US grown flowers that both makes a stand, keeps the $$ in America, and benefits our animal kingdom.
As an artist and naturalist, I love what I do; but the reason I have done what I have with my business is my heart and mission. A mission of awareness to what is really happening in my industry, support our own country, and to give a voice to those living things that have none; with the hope some will heed it. In today’s world I know it is really hard to think beyond your own issues, and I know there are many human tragedies. I also know everyone has a plate full of life-but there are creatures out there that need our attention more than our own-immediately as they are getting pushed under the rug and all for profit.
As I have said many times…I consider humans no more or less supreme than all beings on the planet however IF humans are touted as the supreme beings on this planet then with that also comes the responsibility to take care of all beings sharing this planet around us-from the trees to the elephants to the bees. If everyone were to do whatever they can no matter how small; collectively a difference could be made in the world with those voices heard. Then we would have a movement and then maybe things just might be on the path to be righted.
So please, if you are wanting to give Mother flowers this week or anytime, please check out my Flowers For A Cause first and see all of the designs I have created for any occasion and perfect for Mothers; from a charming Nantucket basket to save the whales for Sea Shepherd to a sunflower topiary to save our wild horses for the American Wild Horse Preservation and so many more from the elephants to the chimps.
And while you are at it, add a bar or 2 of the NY made, organic, Rescue Chocolates-where here too-every dime of profit goes to help dogs & cats in shelters, their advocacy, and foster programs. Make your heart sing as these options don’t cost you an extra cent-I give up my profits for you which…. is my heartsong. Make your Mom proud-there’s no better gift.
And please…if you are reading this and not inclined to or cannot give flowers it’s ok, you can visit the websites I benefit and just add your name on a petition or share their social media posts and then….. do your Mother a good deed-my Mother always says ‘deeds are the best’! 🙂 Share this to everyone you know-lets get some eyes open and help a movement!
And those luscious chocolates………..
