The ability to give to and help others; what does it mean to you?
For me, giving has always been a huge part of my life. From giving a thoughtful gift to a loved one to the simple gift of a smile to a stranger, I truly believe the act of giving is one of the most joyous activities in life.
When I was creating my vision for We Bloom, I always knew there would be a charitable side to my business. I feel incredibly lucky to have created a business in which I can give the joy of fresh flowers to my customers but being able to give back to my community has been the most rewarding part of all. From donating to local school events, or supporting fundraising efforts to simply gifting flowers to those less fortunate, whilst I’ve certainly been able to do these things from time to time, I feel I am now being called to give in a more formal way. And so, I am very excited to announce the launch of Together, We Bloom.
As of 1 January 2020, I will be asking my beautiful Bloom Club members to select a charity to support for the first 6 months of the year, during which 5% of all subscription payments will be donated to the nominated charity. We will then select a new charity to support for the remainder of the year.
For December, I will be donating 20% of all Gift Certificate sales to The Sanctuary, a Women’s Shelter who provides support and temporary accommodation to women and children fleeing domestic violence here in The Hills. You can learn more about The Sanctuary through their Facebook page or website.
I truly believe that we can make a real difference in this world be helping others and giving generously. Kindness is catching and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to spread joy through the work that I do, both through sharing beautiful flowers and by support worthy causes.
Together, we can make a real difference.
Together, We Bloom.
