Doing Good like Deven Parekh

As I get more established in my industry, I would love to serve on board of non-profit and do-good organizations like Deven Parekh. He currently serves on the board of Publicolor, and I'm sure he enjoys every minute of it. Even though I don't live in a big city like Deven Parekh, I would like to find some more opportunities where I can learn more about volunteering and helping in causes that I care about.

Deven Parekh is involved with Publicolor because he cares about motivating teenagers, and I would like to find a women's issues organization or a non-profit that is helping shelter animals find homes. These are 2 causes that I care about deeply. Occasionally I donate money to animal shelters when they send me fund raising letters through the mail, but if I had more spare time, I would like to go to a local animal shelter and help feed and bathe animals that are waiting for new homes.

Great 1800 flowers coupon codes

When I am shopping for flowers for my friends and family, I like to go online first and see if there are any 1800 Flowers coupon codes that can possibly save me some money. I love giving flowers as a gift, but only if I can get a good deal and don't have to spend more than what I have budgeted for.

Now that it is getting colder, I can't grow my own flowers out on my patio. But no worries, I just go online and I can find a pretty bouquet and even have it delivered with extras, like a pretty vase. I can also have it delivered by someone else-- which saves me a lot of time.

Gift Baskets for the Holidays

Because the holidays are right around the corner, I couldn't think of a better gift for my close friends than some gift baskets. There are so many different varieties nowadays and I'm so lucky to be able to find just what I'm looking for online. There are baskets that have fruit, candy, chocolate, flowers, and more. I've tried to make my own basket before but they just aren't as good.

When I'm done updating my other blog and website, I will try to find the perfect gift basket for my friend Leighana at the 1800flowers gift baskets website. They have a lot to chose from and I can also get it delievered to her at work if I really want to make her day! I'm so excited!

Fields of Flowers

If there's one thing I've learned from my travels all over Missouri last month to see what October has to offer, I've learned that I never really appreciated the beauty of the outdoors, especially when it comes to Flowers. We drove past a sunflower field which was seriously breathtaking, and seeing all the fall leaves and how they changed into such beautiful colors has made me think about how flowers really brighten up a person's day.

For instance, even though my mom lives 120 miles away from me, I can still order flowers online from a website like 1-800 Flowers and have them delivered to her at work. She loves sunflowers too, maybe I'll go online right now and order some for her.
