Mothers day flowers

In a recent article, i read people raising money on mothers day to help support research for MS (multiple sclerosis)

If you love your mother, buy her carnations.

If you want to help support research for MS (multiple sclerosis), buy your carnations from the group of volunteers who will be selling them in Golden on Friday and Saturday, May 11 and 12, just in time for Mother’s Day.

In Western culture, the carnation is a flower that expresses love, fascination and distinction.

The pink carnation symbolizes a mother’s undying love and is the official emblem of Mother’s Day.

The flower is also Canada’s oldest and most recognized symbol of hope in the search for a cure for MS.

MS is a disease that comes about when a person’s immune system malfunctions and begins to attack the nervous system. Though people with MS often have a normal life-span, the disease can cause a wide range of problems, including vision problems, difficulty walking, slurred speech, pain, numbness and tingling.

MS touches a lot of people in a lot of ways because it’s a disease that affects everyone differently. It’s out there, but many people don’t know it’s out there.

Though the group hopes to raise some money, the main goal of the carnation campaign lies in promoting community awareness, Kamstra says.

This is an awareness campaign more than anything, she explains. Every dollar raised is more than we’d hoped. Just getting back the price of the flowers would be awesome.

They are bringing in 900 flowers and selling them around town in bunches of three for $5, or a donation.

Also, Runa Bjarnason-Wilson’s class at Lady Grey Elementary School will be selling carnations for $1 each.

Last year, all of the flowers were gone on the first day of the campaign and the group raised $871.16. They already have pre-orders for this year’s flowers, so be sure to get your flowers early.

So buying carnations makes your mother happy and also inturn heling the organization by buying them.
