We want to contribute to our community, and since launching the Bloom of Hope program, we have seen a wonderful response.

Local Austin Florist, King Florist, has seen a blooming year for donations to local non-profits through their Bloom of Hope program. The Bloom of Hope is a monthly spotlight for local and often time’s smaller non-profits in the Austin area with opportunities for raised awareness and a financial contribution from King Florist. Benoit Ballon, the owner of King Florist said; “We want to contribute to our community, and since launching the Bloom of Hope program, we have seen a wonderful response. People have really taken an interest and it shows, especially in the last few months.”

The Bloom of Hope program spotlights a non-profit each month on the King Florist online store, http://www.kingflorist.com, allowing for maximum exposure to any shopper who is browsing the site. The increase in donation purchases really spiked during the 2012 Holiday season, and the trend has continued. Ballon said; “We contribute the success to having beautiful flowers that are new, unique and interesting for people to view and purchase, great clients who wants to give back, and a rise in the economy.”

The month of February was the largest donation on record for King Florist with the proceeds going to Colin’s Hope, a non-profit focused on preventing child drowning. Ballon said; “With the Valentine’s Day rush, we were hoping the spotlight would do well, but it far surpassed our expectations, selling out by the 12th of the Month, a record for King Florist.”

Watch for the upcoming non-profits Divine Canines and Austin Children’s Shelter to finish off the Spring 2013 season at http://www.kingflorist.com. If you are interested in participating in the Bloom of Hope program, send your non-profit information to King Florist from the contact form on their website.
