that brings us to a total of
donated since we started
In 2016, we delivered a lot
Plus over 4,000 mini bouquets handed out at local shops & events throughout Chicago.
Our Flower Truck Traveled All Over
After launching in May, we made nearly 70 different stops throughout Chicago to hand deliver our locally crafted flowers to your neighborhood.
From the CEO
We turned four years old in 2016. And donated our 190,000th dollar to local charity. All because of you. All from the sale of your flowers.
The $200,000 donation mark seemed far out of reach just a few short years ago. I remember thinking about how many tens of thousands of bouquets we'd need to sell to even come close. Sure enough, we're almost there thanks to you guys, and way faster than we could've ever imagined.
While we've grown a lot this past year, and seen our team expand to almost 30 people, our impact has broadened in more ways than just money. And personally, it's what I'm most proud of. Job training female refugees, workshops for the developmentally disabled, handing out flowers to disadvantaged elderly, recycling flowers for those recovering in hospitals, and much more. We even got the first flower truck in Chicago and launched a bridal magazine that's distributed free throughout the city.
2016 was an amazing year, for those reasons and more. With your continued support, orders, likes, and shares, we know 2017 can be even better. Join us as we take Flowers for Dreams to other cities and build a bigger community of beyond profit companies in Illinois and throughout the country.
We need your help, your investment, and your ideas. So if you have some good ones, I'd love to hear them: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for everything,
Co-Founder & CEO
