Want to surprise someone? This Melbourne florist will make their day
To give is to freely transfer the possession of something to someone or cause or allow someone to have or experience something special. Do you know someone who deserves something special? Because we know someone who can really make their day. A local Melbourne florist with a penchant for delivering surprise bouquets to those who need them most every week, and supporting charities through their community give-back program, Givr.
Givr: a special something for a special someone
Flowers Across Melbourne joins a growing list of socially responsible companies that create great products that benefit the local community and beyond. Every month they pair a charity with a bouquet of their most popular and beautiful flower arrangements. Then, at the end of the month, a portion of the sales is donated to the charity. Just by purchasing their monthly charity bouquet, you can give back to the community, spreading the joy beyond your doorstep and even further than FAM’s Preston warehouse location.
Starting way back in 2015, when Princess Charlotte, the second child of Prince William and wife Kate, was born and Goulburn’s Annual Rose Festival turned 22, Flowers Across Melbourne wondered how they could give back to their customers and community. Looking around their floral warehouse in Preston, the idea suddenly dawned upon them. Every single day, they send out bouquets and flower arrangements, bringing happiness to recipients and senders alike. With so many beautiful bouquets and flowers being delivered all across Australia, why not share the spoils?
You can even Givr back to a special someone you know through the weekly surprise flower lottery. Each week you have the opportunity to nominate a special someone to receive a fresh bunch of flowers. It could be someone close to you or someone that cares for their community. Whomever it may be, these incredible florists will give them a beautiful surprise they won’t soon forget.
Maneki Neko Cat Rescue
Beginning with their Fun, Bright Bouquet, Flowers Across Melbourne first partnered with Maneki Neko Cat Rescue “to improve the welfare of less fortunate cats and kittens!” Reflecting the fun nature of cats, 10% of Fun, Bright Bouquet sales during April went directly to improve the welfare of cats and kittens, reducing euthanasia rates and increasing rehoming rates by finding loving homes for healthy de-sexed cats and kittens.
Cancer Support Angels
Flowers Across Melbourne recently worked alongside the Cancer Support Angels, a not-for-profit organisation focussed on providing direct practical, financial and emotional support during and after the treatment period. With a mission statement of “no one fights alone,” Flowers Across Melbourne knew it was up to them to lend a helping hand. During August, 10% of the proceeds from their Little Blooms bouquet sales has been donated to the Cancer Support Angels.
The Period Project
On behalf of the National Homeless Collective, which delivers sleeping bags to rough sleepers outside Flinders Street Station, The Period Project provides sanitary items to homeless women. With a mission “to support women, transgender men and GNC & NB people experiencing homelessness across Australia by providing free sanitary products, assistance, and support,” Flowers Across Melbourne donated a portion of the proceeds from their Little Flower Box during July.
The Sexual Assault and Family Violence Centre
Flowers Across Melbourne supported the Sexual Assault and Family Violence Centre and their “vision for a community free from family violence and sexual assault, and a society underpinned by the principles of gender equality, social justice and human rights.” Adding their voices to the discussion, a portion of the proceeds from their Darling Disbuds Blue in May were donated.
