NetworkforGood.org, the charitable-giving website founded by AOL, Yahoo! and Cisco Systems, and OrganicBouquet.com, the Internet’s first organic florist, have launched FlowersforGood.com, the first online florist to exclusively offer flowers cultivated to protect the environment and sold to help a range of good causes.
Shoppers dedicated to organic living can select from hundreds of arrangements, all grown with environmentally friendly practices, and choose from 10 different charities to benefit from the purchase.
Depending on purchase price, Organic Bouquet will donate $5 or $10 for each bouquet to the charities—all of which have been screened by Network for Good and CharityNavigator.org. Charities include the American Red Cross, Heart to Heart International, the Environmental Defense Fund and Mercy Corps.
“Organic flowers are a perfect example of how a gift of love can keep on giving—for the environment, for the community and for the people closest to our hearts,” says Gerald Prolman, CEO of Organic Bouquet.
