Supporting Women This International Women's Day
As a female-founded company, this day - and all of Women's History Month - means a lot to us. It's a time to celebrate the incredible achievements of women throughout history. A time to be thankful for the amazing women in our lives. And a time to support one another.
This Women's History Month, we are donating flowers throughout the month to our amazing non-profit partners who serve women.
Thank you to our wonderful community for making these donations possible. Learn more about some of these amazing organizations below!
Shalom House: A women's and children's shelter in Harrisburg, PA, the Shalom House provides for the basic needs of the women and children staying in their 21 bed shelter, such as food, health and hygiene supplies, clothes, and a temporary address and phone number. Additionally, the Shalom House provides extensive services to help the women become self-sufficient, including case management, life skills training, computer help, and referral services.
Marian House: Marian House provides a healing community for women and their children who seek housing and support services, in a safe, substance free, and caring environment.

PIVOT: Baltimore-based PIVOT helps women rebuild their lives after incarceration. Unfortunately, many women who leave the prison system struggle to find housing and employment and therefore cannot support their families. On average, 1 in 4 of these women will become homeless after release and more than 70% will become re-offenders, often because of a lack of support services. PIVOT offers a chance for these women to get back on their feet and re-enter society.
Los Angeles House of Ruth: Los Angeles House of Ruth (LAHR) was founded in 1978 to serve homeless women and children, providing all services free of charge. Many women leave their abuser when they realize their children are also in danger, essentially choosing homelessness over abuse. LAHR provides these brave women and their children a safe and secure place to heal.
Malta House: Malta House is the only home for pregnant women above the age of 18 in Fairfield County, CT, and one of a limited number of programs for young homeless mothers and their babies. Since opening their doors in 1998, they have welcomed close to 700 mothers and babies.
