Chicago based start up FlowerPetal.Com created a relief website http://tsunamirelief.flowerpetal.com to benefit the victims of last month's Asian Tsunami. FlowerPetal.Com will donate 12% of each purchase of flowers and gifts from its relief website to three non profit organization funds, distributed equally.

• American Red Cross International Response Fund

• Habitat for Humanity Asia Tsunami Response Fund

• UNICEF Asian Earthquake and Tsunamis Emergency Fund

In an effort to jump start interest in the Tsunami Relief site, FlowerPetal.Com has launched a $10,000+ online advertising campaign to bring about awareness during the busy upcoming Valentine's Day season. Mark Benjamin one of the company’s founders says, “With one of the busiest seasons in the flower industry right around the corner, we figured there's an opportunity to make a real difference for the victims.

We know people send flowers for Valentine's Day and other special occasions and want to help with the relief effort, so why not contribute through purchases they are already planning to make?” FlowerPetal.Com CTO Todd Crummy adds, “When working in a tech company, it becomes obvious that the world is becoming a smaller and smaller place. Although we’re just a start-up, we feel strongly about focusing on more than just the bottom line.”

FlowerPetal.Com intends to run the site for the foreseeable future.
