Feature Of The Month
Our Youth One Community BLOOMS Feature Bouquet for September through December; a portion of all sales (not just this design) will go towards Youth One and their programs.
Youth One is a youth centre dedicated to providing young people with places of belonging and support to become their best.
Youth One’s Story:
“In 2014 Youth One was born because we noticed a major problem plaguing every community. We believe every youth has so much potential but the problem is, many don’t have a dedicated community to help them fully realize it or reach it. This is why Youth One provides a youth centre where youth can find belonging and support to become the best version of themselves.
For this reason, back in 2014, we decided to risk it all by quitting our careers and dedicating ourselves to the cause full time. With no guarantee of funds or success, we passionately pursued the vision we had for youth. This sparked a widespread movement. Now Youth One involves a community of over 500 supporters and team members who give funds and time to provide youth a place of belonging and support. Since then, Youth One has served over 1300 individual youth in the last 5 years and continues to grow in impact. Youth One has ignited various youth centre startups throughout Canada and it continues to pioneer a new path for youth services.”

We encourage our clients to Live Exceptionally & Give Exceptionally.
When reviewing the core values of BLOOMdiggity, we realized that in order to truly inspire exceptional GIVING, we had to begin at home.
Playing a positive role in our community has always been important to us. For this reason, we've created a way to give back every single day.
Community BLOOMS is an initiative that provides financial assistance to Lethbridge Local Charities & Organizations; created so that BLOOMdiggity and its team may LIVE & GIVE exceptionally, further strengthening our own investment & passion for community, as well as leading others to do the same.
To give 2% of daily sales* to local charities/non-profit organizations.
ALL year, EVERY year.
how it works
BLOOMdiggity selects three local organizations based on the passions of its team.
These three organizations will receive 1/3 of the 2% of daily sales during the following periods:
January through April,
May through August, and
September through December.
That way, selected organizations are positioned to benefit from key floral holidays – allowing equal distribution and opportunity for each chosen organization.
Organizations may apply to be one of three featured in a given year. In addition, nominations of organizations will be accepted by our local community.
why only 2%
If it were possible to give 100%, we would! However, after doing many calculations towards sustainability, we are committing to 1-2% of daily sales (excluding weddings & large events).
This % will stand until the means become available to potentially up the ante, so to speak. It is also a feasible promise we can keep, rather than over promising and under delivering.
How much is 2%, anyways?
In the spirit of total transparency, we are hoping to put between $6000-9000 back into local charities for our first year.
This is slightly lofty and based on our projected budget numbers. But this is the goal.
why not weddings & events?
Weddings and Events are designed on a lower markup than daily sales. That’s right! How’s THAT for a Myth Buster?!
Truth is, our market just doesn’t allow for its florists to charge full price for wedding work. For this reason, we are excluding wedding and event work so large scale events still meet market demand, and are able to be designed at the same quality.
