Flower Power Wrap Up - THANK YOU!!

This past spring, we collaborated with Flower Power Fundraising to host our most successful team fundraiser to date.  With all of the money that we raised now in, we are thrilled to announce that we raised $835 through this fundraiser - an amazing success!

For those that don't remember, Flower Power Fundraising is an online direct sales company that sells flowers and other garden plants to help raise money for your specific charity of choice - in our case, the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure.  Flower Power sells top-quality, best-selling flower bulbs and plants and in exchange for helping to promote their company, our team for the 3 Day received a full 50% of the proceeds from each sale made through our team link.  We could not have had a better experience with Flower Power Fundraising and we made a ton of money for breast cancer research to boot!

All together, we sold $1669 worth of plants through this fundraiser, resulting in $835 for our team.  We ultimately had 25 people purchase flowers through Flower Power with an average sale of $67.  It is because of all of your generosity that we were able to raise so much money so we wanted to take a minute and recognize all of our friends and family that took the time to buy their flowers from us:

I also wanted to take the time to recognize Relentless Optimism team member Melissa C. for discovering Flower Power Fundraising and acting as the main point person throughout this fundraiser!  She did a ton of work getting us all set up and we are incredibly thankful to her for her efforts.

Finally, thank you to everyone who helped us to spread the word about this fundraiser.  As always, our efforts live and die by the strength of word of mouth.  To all of you who reposted on Facebook, retweeted on Twitter, sent out emails and just generally spread the word about Flower Power on our behalf, thank you so much!

As always, if you would like to make an additional donation to Relentless Optimism, you can find the links to each of our individual pages in the right hand sidebar.  You can also find our team page on the 3 Day website by clicking here.  All four of our walkers have now surpassed their fundraising minimums.  However, we are still a long ways away from our team goal of raising $20,000.  Please help us to reach our goal by making an additional donation today!
I hope that everyone's plants are providing them an endless amount of joy and beauty this summer!  Thank so much for supporting Relentless Optimism!!
