CARE and Organic Bouquet Partner to Fight Global Poverty

San Francisco, CA (October 12, 2005) - The international humanitarian organization CARE and Organic Bouquet Inc., the world's first online organic florist, have partnered to raise awareness about global poverty and funds to support CARE's poverty-fighting work.

For every purchase of flowers through www.organicbouquet.com/care, Organic Bouquet will donate 10% of the gross retail price to CARE.

Additionally, Organic Bouquet will make a donation to CARE of 5% of the gross retail price for every sale of their new certified organic rose bouquet - created especially to support the work of CARE and available in the Charitable Bouquet collection at www.OrganicBouquet.com.


CARE LOGO"We at CARE are extremely pleased to partner with Organic Bouquet," says Peter Bell, President and CEO of CARE. "Donations made to CARE will help strengthen our work in the world's poorest countries - especially among women and girls who are disproportionately affected by poverty and are crucial to fighting it."

Hundreds of thousands of individuals and dozens of U.S. corporations, foundations and other organizations support CARE each year.

"All of us at Organic Bouquet are very proud to support the vital work CARE provides so many people in need around the world," said Gerald Prolman, CEO of Organic Bouquet. "It gives us great satisfaction to know that sales of our flowers will not only support a cleaner earth but contribute to the well-being of the underprivileged."

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.
