For over forty years Californian orchid grower Westerlay Orchids has produced some of the Pacific Coast’s most beautiful blooms, shipping over three million plants annually to local grocery stores throughout the Western US. Now, the company issues a “100,000 Orchid Challenge” to uplift and inspire communities throughout California by sending orchids to front line workers and those isolated in quarantine.
“We’re showing our gratitude to those on the front lines of this pandemic, setting a goal of sending 100,000 flowering orchids to nurses, doctors, and other hospital staff in California,” explains Westerlay Orchids Owner Toine Overgaag. “We need the community’s help to reach this goal, so we are looking for significant financial sponsorships to help cover partial costs while ensuring the livelihood of our 120 employees and the survival of our business.
Starting locally, Westerlay Orchids will ship to several major Los Angeles hospitals within the week. Join the “100,000 Orchid Challenge” by visiting Box of Orchids and send a box of orchids at well below wholesale price to your Mom for Mothers Day, or anyone you want to send love to. Orchids can be shipped anywhere in CA, NV, OR and AZ.
