Mark your calendar! This November 28 is Giving Tuesday, a global effort to promote acts of charity. People world-wide will be donating their time, energy and resources to the most deserving institutions in their communities, and we here in Wilmington are no different. Boyd’s Flowers has found a way to combine the loving gesture of sending someone flowers with the gesture of giving back to our city. And it’s available year round.
We call it Sharing Hands, and it’s our way of making every time you purchase flowers online from us the chance to give a second gift. And it’s easy. When you’re selecting that perfect arrangement for that special someone – we like our Basalm Fir Wishes, a sweet little seasonal design, for this time of year – simply click on the Sharing Hands drop down menu.
Once you do, a long list of local organizations is revealed. Find the one nearest and dearest to your heart, and $2 of your purchase will go directly to them.
After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a wonderful chance to balance out your consuming with your giving. There’s nothing like the gift of flowers to make someone feel thought about and loved; in fact, that’s the only motive behind sending them! And it’s the same when we give to those Wilmington organizations that need our help the most.
