Every year, over $100 billion in fresh cut flowers are manufactured, shipped, and gifted across the globe. Sadly, most will become waste within 2-3 weeks when they inevitably fade. Fresh cut flowers have been a time-honoured gift since the 19th century, and today, we continue to gift flowers for occasions all year round. Here at the Giving Roses Project, we feel it’s time for this classic present to evolve. In partnership with the Canadian Women’s Foundation, we are proud to offer a gift that leaves a little more behind.
The Canadian Women’s foundation supports programs that prevent gender-based violence, promote female economic development, and empower young girls across the country. By contributing to the Giving Roses project, a donation to the Canadian Women’s Foundation will be registered on your behalf, and we’ll send you a rose pin and card that you can gift to your loved ones and let them know you’ve donated in their name.
