*** The Benefit Literacy Campaign has now concluded! We are proud to announce that was a huge success!! Should you wish to to have your organization considered for our Karin’s Gives Back program, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application ***
Valentine’s Day may be over but we are reinvigorated and excited to turn our energies back towards our charitable work, especially our partnership with the Wish You Well Foundation.
The Wish You Well Foundation is the brain child of former lawyer and Bestselling Author, David Baldacci, and his wife Michelle. Aimed at tackling family illiteracy since 2002, the Foundation has donated over $500,000 to projects including the DC-based Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy and Big Creek People in Action in McDowell County, West Virginia. The Baldaccis stand by the fact that virtually none of the major issues we face as a nation today can be successfully overcome until we eradicate illiteracy. A staggering 100 million Americans–nearly half of the population–live their everyday lives unable to read, or reading at a below-average level.
Because of these numbers, our designers here at Karin’s have created the beautiful and unique “Benefit Literacy Bouquet” to aid The Wish You Well Foundation. We have also committed to donating 10% of the product proceeds to this wonderful organization through the end of February.
While we know February 14th stands out as a big “flower sending” day, there are always reasons to send flowers the rest of the month. In the next couple of weeks, if you need flowers for a birthday, anniversary, get well, bereavement or just because, we encourage you to check out the “Benefit Literacy Bouquet” and send it to a loved one. Help The Wish You Well Foundation and Karin’s Florist tackle illiteracy in the United States. Not only will you surprise a loved one with a specially designed arrangement, you’re also making a difference in the life of someone who needs it!
