Org to Partner With: Full Bloom

Beautiful flowers should never go to waste. Cue The Full Bloom, a company that accepts donated flower arrangements from events and rearranges them, then gives them to terminally ill and hospice patients to enjoy. Planners hosting an event in or near Spokane, Washington, can partner with the nonprofit and either donate their arrangements or schedule an afternoon for a few members of their group to arrange and deliver the flowers themselves. “I tell them not to be intimidated if they have no prior experience with arranging,” says founder Shawn Chamberlain. “I guide them through it, but they really can’t go wrong. It’s done out of love.” Photo credit: Full Bloom
