Community Campaigns

Petals n Buds Bear Mountain Florists & Petals n Buds Metchosen Florist staff believe in community –Working together lays a strong foundation for people to live and lead healthier, happier lives. In the spirit of building happy and healthy communities, Petals n Buds company will sponsor timely thematic campaigns to support specific organizations. We are proud to introduce our current campaign: Let’s talk About Pumpkins.

LET’S TALK ABOUT PUMPKINS!

Let’s Talk About Pumpkins is a community awareness campaign that doubles as a means to give financial assistance to two major organizations in our local community doing amazing things The Mustard Seed and The BC Cancer Foundation. Two major disruptions in life reveal themselves in both the physical health and the social health of our lives. Our physical health is often disrupted by catastrophic disease, such as Cancer. Our social life is often disrupted equally by conditions such as child poverty and family need.

POPPY CAMPAIGN

Rememberance Day 2013Strong organizations such as The Royal Canadian Legion play a key role in building happy and healthy communities. We have chosen to support the Royal Canadian Legion Poppy Campaign by purchasing hundreds of poppies each year and attaching them to all our designs before delivery from November 1 leading up to the Remembrance Day ceremony.

Tara Koshman Associate Member of the Royal Canadian Legion. Both Grandparents worked loyally in the Air force during WWII and shared their stories with me growing up. Therefore, the Royal Canadian Legions Poppy Campaign is particularly meaningful. Wearing a Poppy November 1 – 11th serves to remind and teach generations, “…great effort and sacrifice is required so that we live and lead healthy, free lives.” Our Canadian troops to this day are in battles for peace every day, oversees. The Royal Canadian Legion who support our Military, Navy and Airforce members and their families is a worthy recipient.
