Organic Bouquet Offers 'Freedom Roses' to Support the American Red Cross
San Francisco (June 6, 2006) - OrganicBouquet.com, the Internets first eco-florist, offers the "American Red Cross Freedom Rose," a special bouquet to support the mission of the American Red Cross.
The "American Red Cross Freedom Rose" bouquet -- two dozen long-stemmed red roses that are Veriflora eco-certified -- will retail for $64.95 plus tax and shipping. Organic Bouquet will donate 10 percent of each purchase made at www.OrganicBouquet.com/AmericanRedCross. Also, Organic Bouquet will donate five percent from each "American Red Cross" bouquet purchased from its "Charitable Bouquet" collection at www.OrganicBouquet.com.
"The American Red Cross is grateful to Organic Bouquet for choosing our organization as the beneficiary of the 'Freedom Roses,'" said Kathleen Loehr, interim senior vice president for development. "Customers who purchase the bouquet will enable the Red Cross to help Americans prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies."
The American Red Cross mobilizes people to help their neighbors in emergencies. Each year, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to the nearly 1 million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through more than 800 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world. Some 4 million people give blood through the Red Cross, making it the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States.
"We are very proud to support the American Red Cross in its efforts to provide relief and critical services to those in need around the globe," said Gerald Prolman, CEO of OrganicBouquet.com. "By purchasing the American Red Cross Freedom Rose Bouquet, you can take heart in knowing that the earth is enriched, relief is provided to those in need and the recipient will enjoy a glorious display of very large and long lasting elegant red roses."
Recently, OrganicBouquet.com was a Gold Sponsor and provided flowers for the American Red Cross' 125th anniversary celebration at its 81st annual national convention in Washington, D.C. The event brought together over 3,000 volunteers and employees to celebrate 125 years of service.
