We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Asheville has a wonderful sense of community. You can find collaborations of all kinds everywhere you look, and you can find lots of people helping each other too. Part of Blooms mission is to come alongside some folks who we think are taking great strides in making a difference in the lives of others.
Veterans Healing Farm is one of those making a big difference. Their mission is to serve our nation's veterans by growing and donating high-quality fruits, vegetables and flowers to veterans and their caregivers free of charge. Then, they teach other vets to replicate their program.
We have a soft spot for Vets. Patty is one and Mac is currently serving. We are blown away and so encouraged by what VHF is doing. Choosing to donate to them was an easy decision. $1 from every regular bouquet sold will be donated to VHF.
We'd like to use our little flower business to help other organizations as well. We think flowers make for a great fundraising tool. Who doesn't love flowers? And if they can help generate some much needed funds for a non-profit, then we want in on that. We have our sights set on a few groups but if you have (or know of) any non-profit, ministry or organization who would want to raise funds from flower sales, please put them in touch with us!
