Feature Of The Month
Our Community BLOOMS Feature from September through December is the BGC Lethbridge.
Formerly known as the Boys & Girls Club, the BGC rebranded in order to “modernize the brand” as well as align with the Clubs “inclusive practices [they’re] known for without straying too far from [their] history and national brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that [they] serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.”
The BGC are firm believes that every single child/teen deserves a vibrant future, and that when the right supports and opportunities are provided, anything is possible!
For more information, you can watch their video which addresses their rebrand and their amazing programs.
Proceeds from our daily sales between the months of September through December will be donated to Lethbridge’s local BGC Chapter.
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.
