Heifer International Partners with Organic Bouquet
Revenues Help Fight Global Poverty

San Francisco, CA (October 10, 2005) - Heifer International - which works in 128 countries to end hunger and poverty has partnered with Organic Bouquet Inc. (www.OrganicBouquet.com), the world's first online organic florist, to raise funds to support Heifer's charitable efforts.

For every purchase of flowers through www.organicbouquet.com/heifer, Organic Bouquet will donate 10% of the purchase price to Heifer International.

Additionally, Organic Bouquet will make a donation to Heifer for every sale of their long-stemmed, light cream peach "Versilia Roses" bouquet - available in the Charitable Bouquet collection of www.OrganicBouquet.com - especially chosen to support the work of Heifer.


Since 1944, Heifer International is a non-profit humanitarian organization working to end hunger by giving cows, goats and other food and income producing livestock to struggling families around the world. Recipients are trained in animal care and environmentally sound agriculture practices so they can lift themselves out of poverty and become self-reliant.

"Heifer International is thrilled to partner with Organic Bouquet, " said Jane Ellen Frazier, Corporate Relations Account Manager for Heifer International. "We're pleased to have the opportunity to showcase the benefit of purchasing sustainably grown flowers."

"Our partnership with Heifer will support their important efforts to end world hunger," said Gerald Prolman, CEO of Organic Bouquet. "In addition, people can take satisfaction in knowing that their purchase of sustainably grown flowers benefits Heifer recipients, farm workers and the environment."

Organic Bouquet has pioneered the environmental flower market, working with growers around the world who are committed to the highest social and environmental standards. Flowers are grown and harvested using practices that aim to improve the quality of farm working conditions, minimize damage to ecosystems, conserve biodiversity, and enhance environmental quality for future generations.
