Leading With Flowers

"We use beautiful flowers to advance causes of justice & charity in our community."
Our mission since 2012. It felt humble, small, very local when we would say it back then. Nearly a decade later, it is known widely throughout the floral industry. With your help, we've truly set the example of social responsibility in our sector.

In 2021, we started the first ever nonprofit florist in a florist.
In 2022, we reached $1M donated- all through the sale of flowers.
In 2023, we launched the most ambitious roadmap to become carbon neutral and end first-use plastic. We re-certified as a B Corporation - the first flower company to ever become one and a pioneer for dozens of others to follow suit.

As we look ahead to 2024, we're hoping to fund our 250th local charity from your flowers. We're focusing all of our charitable efforts on the next generation. Kids who don't have access, teens who need mentorship, and young voters who will help decide the future of our country. Will you join us with more support?
