This year Teleflora will be celebrating their 10th anniversary of Make Someone Smile Week and the event is revered as the floral industry’s leading charitable project. The week will run from today, July 18th, through Saturday, July 24th.
According to the Teleflora announcement release on June 29th, Teleflora will be donating more than 50,000 of their Be Happy Mugs to their member florists, who in turn will work with local wholesalers and growers to secure donated flowers. The florists will then use these flowers to design cheerful Be Happy Bouquets that will be delivered to those most in need of a smile – such as hospital patients, senior citizens living in nursing homes and assisted living homes, and recipients of Meals-on-Wheels programs.
In their announcement Teleflora notes that in 10 years more than 20,000 florists in the U.S. and Canada have donated their time to this program and they have delivered more than 200,000 bouquets to those most in need of a smile. They also acknowledge that none of this would be possible without the dedication of their member florist volunteers who work hard every year to see that the residents in their local communities benefit from this program. To honor their 10th anniversary Teleflora will be awarding 10 lucky member florists a check for $1,000 that they can give to a charity of their choice.
Thank you Teleflora for making these smiles possible!
