Flowers for a good cause

Seeing as November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, I thought it prudent to remind ourselves that there is much to be done, and you can send flowers in support of this cause and many others. You can send flowers from the Lung Cancer Alliance's flower shop. 12% of each sale goes straight to the LCA. You can also make monetary donations from the checkout page. The Lung Cancer Alliance is the only national non-profit organization dedicated solely to patient support and advocacy for people living with lung cancer and those at risk for the disease. FlowerPetal.Com is the company that runs the shop for the LCA and they perform the same fundraising for other non-profits around the country. Contact them to send flowers for a good cause.
