Several years ago I heard about a new non-profit organization who would pick up event florals and re-purpose them. This fall I finally had a chance to partner with them, and I'm glad I did.
ReBloom is a small but mighty organization that will pick up florals after an event, spruce them up as needed, and then deliver them to a worthy non-profit like a hospital, hospice or similar location.
They were great to work with, and my client -- a very large regional non-profit -- was delighted to see their investment have new life after a big corporate dinner/business meeting. We paid a small fee to help ReBloom recoup some of their expenses. Our flowers were cleaned up a bit, and then taken to a local hospital. There, each visitor was presented with an arrangement to take to the hospitalized friend or family member. A win-win indeed!
