$65 for a dozen roses? Are you nuts?!
Nope, it’s Valentine’s Day, when many a man scurries to his local florist, grocery store or street vendor to let his sweetheart know how much he adores her (or simply that he remembered). What many don’t know is that because of the high demand for flowers, especially roses, vendors double, even triple flower prices on that sweet day, a little secret that my previous grocer and flower mart vendors shared with me.
Light bulb time!
Designs by Alina decided to break (or add to) the old tradition in two ways:
2) Designs by Alina is spreading the love beyond our valentine by donating 20% of all designsbyalina.com proceeds during the month of February to our local Foodbank which not only provides food to those in need but educates recipients on the value of nutrition.
Our family became acquainted with the organization in Santa Barbara a few years ago when our then 11-year-old son completed a triathlon with his friend. Their efforts, which were widely covered in the media, not only spread awareness in our community but also raised over $10,000 for our local Foodbank.
We hope you consider gifting her with something that lasts more than just a few days while benefitting others in need of your love.
