Story

 The Sunflower Appeal.  This Mother’s Day -  give £1 for the mothers of Ukraine. SUNFLOWER FOR UKRAINE.    

Funds raised will go to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal via JustGiving.  

This is just not a fund raising appeal, it is my mission to bring businesses and communities together to do something great for the Mothers of Ukraine on our Mothers day weekend 26th -27th March.

Take a look at www.sunflowerforukraine.co.uk. The website provides all the resources any business organisation or willing private person needs to raise funds and collectively come together to do something great.

Why has this been set up?.

I run a small floristry business, 99.9% of UK businesses are SME's.  At Mother’s Day, 27th March this year, florists make and deliver thousands of gifts for Mothers across the country, so we know just how important Mum’s are.  

As an SME community  isn't always easy to come together  to do something collectively.  And to be honest, sometimes it’s a question of where do even I start if I want to help?  And that got me thinking … and got me started and why I am asking YOU to join me.

 It’s easy to do, it works for every business and it’s an amazing way to help  another mother and her children affected by conflict in Ukraine.  So please help … because this is a way we CAN come together; we can do this and do some good.

How can YOU take part?     There are two ways you can help, take part, and spread the word.     

1:  Use the resource pack I have set up from the resource page on this website  and add the donation option to your website.  You then simply total it up and send the donations to the JustGiving page.     

2:  You use every contact and channel you have – be it customer lists or social media - to promote the initiative using the marketing material I have set up … again linking to the JustGiving page which will send the money to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal and be matched by Government funding.      

These are the social media handles for The Sunflower Appeal Post Tag Tweet tell. lets do this together collectively.

Update and pass on what you have gathered regularly to the JustGiving page.  If you can, please do it every day, because the more we can see we have raised, the more momentum we get.     

Hopefully this is all clear but any questions please email me at eliz@elizabethmckennaflowers.co.uk.  We’ are a small team so it may not be an instant reply but I’ll get back to you as soon as possible,     In the meantime, thank you – the more involved the merrier and will mean we can come together as businesses and do something special at Mother’s Day for Ukrainian Mothers.
