Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 27, 2017 -- New York-based From You Flowers, which has an affiliation with more than 20,000 premier florists worldwide, has topped $50,000 in donations to Hire Heroes USA, the preeminent nonprofit organization providing employment services to transitioning U.S. military members, veterans and military spouses across the United States and around the world.
The online retailer first partnered with Hire Heroes USA for a Fourth of July campaign in 2016. It has now run a total of three week-long fundraising initiatives, the most recent resulting in a $22,850 donation. Each time, the company enables flower delivery shoppers to be part of the effort through a special “HERO” promotion code. When that code is used for purchase, From You Flowers donates a percent of the order to Hire Heroes USA.
The efforts, so far, have resulted in over 10,000 flower orders using that code and $51,995 in donations by From You Flowers - proof that small donations can add up to make a big charitable impact.
“At a time when we are seeing increasing demand for our free career counseling and job sourcing services, the efforts of From You Flowers, their staff and their customers makes an immediate and real impact on our ability to serve more veterans and military spouses who need our assistance,” said Brian Stann, President and CEO of Hire Heroes USA and a Marine Corps combat veteran. “The response to these fundraising campaigns has been nothing short of amazing. In addition to supporting our services, From You Flowers also provides Hire Heroes USA a significant opportunity to increase awareness about our nonprofit and the vital work we do every day.”
The money raised by From You Flowers means Hire Heroes USA can assist more than 5,000 veterans and military spouses with one-on-one career counseling sessions, an essential part of our free services which also include resume help, individual assessments and mock interviews.
“From You Flowers is grateful for the service that the men and women of the armed forces have taken on behalf of our country. We are proud to have partnered with Hire Heroes USA multiple times to offer our customers an opportunity to give back to those individuals who have given so much. It is our hope to continue to partner with nonprofits that assist our active duty service members, as well as our veterans,” Michael Chapin, CEO of From You Flowers, said.
Since 2007, Hire Heroes USA has worked to make a measurable and long-term impact on veteran employment in the United States, and the numbers speak volumes. To date, Hire Heroes USA has helped more than 16,000 veterans and military spouses into new careers in the civilian workforce and generated an estimated economic impact of $193 million.
