This Mother’s Day, make Mom smile with the gift of beautiful flowers while also making a difference in the life of a young child in your community. From now through all of 2012, ProFlowers will make a $10 contribution to consumers’ local Easter Seals for every purchase made online at http://www.proflowers.com/easterseals. Funds raised through this partnership will support Easter Seals services for children with autism and other disabilities. A wide variety of merchandise is available through the promotion, like fresh bouquets, tasty cake pops and sweet spring berries.

“As we celebrate moms everywhere and the good they do, ProFlowers.com and our parent company, Provide Commerce, are privileged to partner with Easter Seals to support the important work it is doing to help young children and families across the country,” says Provide Commerce Affiliate Marketing Manager Jeff DeBo.

The online promotion will continue throughout 2012 to impact Easter Seals’ Make the First Five Count® initiative, designed to provide critical early intervention services to young children from birth to age five at risk of autism, developmental delays or other disabilities so they can start school on par with their peers, assuring the foundation they need for a lifetime of learning.

As the nation’s leading non-profit provider of services for individuals with autism, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities and other special needs, Easter Seals knows that getting the right services at the earliest stage in life helps a child gain the skills he or she needs to be successful.

“Every year, we as a nation fail to identify 1.5 million children under the age of five with autism, developmental delays or other disabilities” says James E. Williams, Jr., president and chief executive officer of Easter Seals. “Easter Seals is working to change that! Our partnership with ProFlowers promises to generate valuable support to ensure these children are identified and provided the early intervention services they need through our Make the First Five Count® initiative.”
