Good Deed Friday: Charitable Bouquets

Friday, February 6th, 2009

Thanks to lingering guilt from forgetting to send out Christmas cards, a few years ago I started my own tradition—mailing Valentine’s Day cards to everyone on my neglected holiday card list (Note: It’s best not to send the holiday cards you already bought, trying to pass Frosty off as a crudely-rendered Cupid).

I like to think this gesture stands out more. Even if some of my friends are on to me, everyone likes getting a Valentine. But with my mom, who works tirelessly to host both sides of our family every year at Christmas (without forgetting to mail cute cards first), I step it up with flowers.

This year will be even better because her lovely rose bouquet from Organic Bouquet will benefit the National Audubon Society, which is close to her nature-loving heart. Check out the whole range of charitable bouquets they offer. Plus, if you already mailed a few repurposed reindeer cards, following up with flowers might help.
