Flowers for Dreams started as an unassuming college project. We set out to sell a few hundred roses to parents outside a high school graduation ceremony. The plan was to use half the profit to upgrade our college diets from frozen pizza to takeout, and the other half to buy backpacks for the low income students we tutored during summer. Make a little money and make a difference. (via)If you are planning to send someone flowers for Valentine's Day in Chicago this year (or any time of the year), I've recently come across a flower company that donates 25% of their profits to charity. Allow me to introduce you to Flowers for Dreams.
Aside from all this, they offer free delivery to most places in Chicago and the flowers are beautiful.
