It’s the halfway point in the year, and to celebrate, we’re looking back at all the amazing things we were able to accomplish in 2018 with the help of this beautiful community. Our most significant takeaway from last year is that we live in an incredibly kind and generous community! We are so grateful to be a small part of what makes this place vibrant.

2018 brought about so many exciting things for us and our growth. Not only did we continue spreading our mission of inspiring hope, happiness and emotional healing through repurposed
flowers, we also reached several other milestones, including:

– Secured a great shop space through the generosity of APM

– Expanded our footprint to serve more community members through 30-plus organizations

– Hired our first part-time employee, Robyn Gatz, who helps manage the day-to-day operations of the organization

– Received several grants to support our mission through the Burgum Foundation, FM Area Foundation and First International Bank

– Welcomed several new board members to help keep the organization moving forward

Our mission continues to operate with the fundamental belief that we all matter, and we work every day to demonstrate this through the gift of flowers to our community members who are facing difficult times.

Thank you to every person who gave of their precious time and resources to support our mission to provide a more inclusive and joyful community for all. We quite simply couldn’t do it without you.
