"Blossoms for Better"
We are so fortunate to do what we love, but there is nothing better than doing good for others and giving back. Here at Eco Chic Blossoms we started "Blossoms for Better," where $1 for each bouquet and boutonniere we create is donated to one of three foundations listed below.
Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation
The Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation was our first foundation added to Blossoms for Better, in memory of my niece, Layla Carr who passed away a few days after birth in May 2014 from a rare heart disease associated with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. The CdLS Foundation provides support to families affected by CdLS and helps raise awareness and educate the community about this rare genetic syndrome.
Homes of Hope India
Homes of Hope India is another organization we are proud to be involved with. Homes of Hope is transforming the lives of orphaned, abandoned and neglected girls throughout India. They build orphanages and schools, provide excellent education, nutritious food, love and everything needed to launch girls on to productive lives.
Do It For The Love
We are so excited to have recently added "Do It For The Love" to our group. Started by my favorite musician, Michael Franti and his wife Sarah Agah, Do It For The Love is a nonprofit wish-granting foundation that brings people living with life-threatening illnesses, children with severe challenges, and wounded veterans to live concerts. Through the healing power of music, their goal is to inspire joy, hope, and lasting celebratory memories in the face of severe illness or trauma.
“I don’t know if music can change the world overnight but I know that music can help someone make it through a difficult night.” ~ Michael Franti
