A Good Cause

Buy local! Save the environment! Do your part in helping the sick and the needy!

Do I sound like a politician going after your vote? Sorry about that! Let me fill you in on a website that can accomplish these things for you - all with one (or maybe a few) clicks! Is there anyone alive who doesn't love a beautiful bouquet of roses, pitching in to help the economy by buying local, and perhaps most importantly, helping with breast cancer awareness? You can accomplish all three by purchasing fresh roses from I have mentioned this website before in a previous blog post, but this deserves another mention because of the charity angle.

Right now, you can get a special 18-rose bouquet in pink in honor of breast cancer awareness month, and they will donate money to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The roses from this site are grown in a "boutique-like” setting in Central Cali - they are hand-selected, cut and then shipped. The mass producers of roses can take up to a week to ship and they are imported, mostly from South America. Another plus is California Blooms uses eco-friendly growing practices, which saves water and energy. What better way to help to save lives AND the economy AND the environment!!!! California Blooms has my vote.
