LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Teachers play a major role in building brighter futures for our children. This May, Teleflora, the world's leading floral delivery service and GLSEN, the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe and affirming schools for all students, are partnering to help you express your gratitude for all the teachers that are making a difference in their communities. During Teacher Appreciation Week (May 2 to 6, 2016), individuals who purchase Teleflora's Be Happy® Bouquet with Roses – a Teleflora "Fan Favorite," – will enjoy 20 percent off the purchase price. In turn, Teleflora will donate 10 percent of all sales of Teleflora's Be Happy Bouquet with Roses during Teacher Appreciation Week to advancing GLSEN's mission.
"Everyone can remember at least one teacher who truly made a positive impact on their educational experience without expecting anything in return," said David Dancer, Teleflora's Executive Vice President and Head of Marketing. "We're proud to be able to give back to these educators in some way and to support GLSEN's cause, which enhances our educational system by ensuring every student, in every school is valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression."
"My life was shaped by amazing teachers who 'got' me, including my mom. At GLSEN I get daily reminders of the difference dedicated, caring educators make for millions of students who need their support to thrive. Thank you, Teleflora, for helping us all celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, and for your support of GLSEN's work to create safe and affirming schools for all," said Eliza Byard, Executive Director of GLSEN.
