We all know April showers bring May flowers, but did you know July flowers bring August… bikes?
Local flower company Flowers for Dreams creates beautiful bouquets, delivers them by bike, and donates a quarter of their profits to a different Chicago charity each month. Since Flowers for Dreams launched in 2012 they have donated nearly $63,000 to local nonprofits.
We were excited to be chosen as their July beneficiary, and hope you are too! This month, if you’re looking for flowers to jazz up a backyard cookout, need a special gift for a loved one, or just want to treat yourself, check out Flowers for Dreams. While you enjoy a bouquet, you’ll also be supporting our local bike donation program, helping us provide a bike, helmet, and u-lock to a Chicagoan in need.
