NEW YORK, July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- From You Flowers partnered with national nonprofit Hire Heroes USA this 4th of July, in support of their mission to assist military members, veterans and military spouses into the civilian workforce. With one million men and women transitioning from the military over the next 4 years, From You Flowers raised a donation of $11,850 to go toward Hire Heroes USA's efforts to make that transition easier.
"The generous donation from the team at From You Flowers is a great example of the impact that can result when good business intersects with doing good," said Nathan Smith, chief operating officer at Hire Heroes USA and a Marine combat veteran. "Americans are eager to support the military and veterans, but don't always know how to do so. From You Flowers made it easy to support a veteran cause. As a result of this donation, we'll help nearly ten American veterans gain great civilian careers."
Hire Heroes USA is a one-stop resource, offering a continuum of free, individualized programs delivered through virtual career coaching and transition workshops. When From You Flowers began spearheading their project their objective was clear, they wanted to use the Fourth of July holiday to raise a donation that would go toward assisting veterans. "We really wanted to run a 4th of July campaign to show our appreciation for the men and women who have served this country and have helped to make it what it is today" said Michael Chapin, CEO of From You Flowers. Hire Heroes USA with their multiple services and expansive training programs was an obvious choice for From You Flowers to partner with.
With a goal to raise money for Hire Heroes USA to assist more veterans, From You Flowers formed a strategic media plan to call on their flower delivery shoppers to assist in the program. Posting through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, the company announced that they would donate $5.00 for every flower order with a special "Hero" promotion code. The campaign ran for one week, resulting in the culmination of an $11,850 donation by the end. From You Flowers is proud to have raised funds for our military veterans and are thankful for the work that our active military and veterans have done to keep our country safe.
