MOTHER'S DAY BOUQUET A CHARITABLE GIFT

The Daily Sun
4/8/2006

Portland, Ore.—Mercy Cow an international aid organization, has partnered with OrganicBouquet.com to create a meaningful gift for this Mother's Day.

Proceeds from sales of a special edition "Mother's Day Mercy Kit" - a beautiful bouquet of sustainably grown flowers that can be conveniently purchased online at www.mercycorps.org/ mercy kits - support Mercy Corps' humanitarian work to improve the lives of needy families and children, including Hurricane Katrina victims along the Gulf Coast.

Each Mother's Day Mercy Kit bouquet sells for $100, which includes home delivery, a Fragrant Garden bouquet and a personalized card.

"Many of Mercy Corps' programs address the needs of women who are overcoming incredible odds as they recover from famine, poverty, conflict, or natural disasters" says Tanya Zumach, Mercy Corps' Web Marketing Specialist. "This Mother's Day, we want to provide a gift option that not only honors our own mothers, but also makes a difference in the lives of mothers around the world:'

Established in 2001, OrganicBouquet.com pioneered the organic 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. Organic Bouquet will also have a charitable bouquet of Elegant Copper Roses dedicated to Mercy Corps at www.organicbouquet.com/ mercycorps, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Mercy Corps.

The Mother's Day Kit is just one of the many charitable gift options that Mercy Corps offers year-round. These "Mercy Kits" also include a women's health kit, a kid's food kit and a Katrina rebuilding kit - to name a few.

Mercy Corps received an A rating for its financial performance from the American Institute of Philanthropy. In addition, the organization's 90 percent efficiency rating (over five years) ensures donors that their resources go directly to humanitarian aid programs.
