“We rise by lifting others.” - Robert Ingersoll
We love to petal it forward! Philanthropy is woven into the fabric of our identity as a business and gives us an opportunity to support our local cancer community. It turns out that flowers do more than brighten a space - they are healing, too. Research shows that flowers can lower anxiety, reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance overall emotional wellness.
We partner with two local non-profit organization that are dear to our hearts, and were instrumental during the four-year journey while our founder Jelena's mom was battling with pancreatic cancer:
The Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research is focused on finding a cure for pancreatic cancer, and empowering the patients and families whose lives are touched by this disease. Founded in 1997, the foundation funds groundbreaking scientific research, provides patient education and support, and sustains hope that this cancer will be eradicated once and for all.
Pants Off Racing, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of, and helping those affected by, pancreatic cancer.
