Portland, Ore. - (June 25, 2018) - Easterseals Oregon joins Farm Fresh Flowers, LLC with a way for the average citizen to say 'thank you for your service' to veterans being helped by Easterseals Oregon. The two-part campaign sends a bouquet of fresh flowers along with a thank you card and will be delivered in person. The flowers can be purchased anonymously or can be sent directly to a veteran by the person placing the order. Secondly, profits from the sale of the flowers go back to Easterseals Oregon. The funds will be directed toward both rehabilitation and job placement programs for veterans.

"This is a wonderful way to thank the veterans that we are helping through our programs," explained David Cheveallier President/CEO of Easterseals Oregon. "The flowers are beautiful and the profits go to our rehabilitation and job placement programs. For us, it's a home run of an idea and we're very excited about it."
The "Liberty" campaign includes an enormous bouquet of fresh cut flowers, bundled, wrapped and sent overnight directly for a veteran being assisted by Easterseals Oregon. The bouquet features red, white and blue colored flowers and includes between 30-40 stems. A 'thank you' note is included inside the blue box. The flowers are given anonymously and the veterans name and contact information is kept confidential.
"We have lots of people who ask how to contribute to our veterans programs," said Cheveallier. "We have lots of very generous donors who are looking for something meaningful for less than $100.00. We did a test of this campaign last year and the impact that it had on our veterans was simply overwhelming. So many had never been 'thanked' before for their service. It's one of the most powerful gifts outside of our services that I've ever seen given. Flowers are just incredibly accepted."
