Edible Blooms in the Community

At Edible Blooms we believe in supporting the communities that support our business. We believe that we are blessed to operate in such an abundant country and it is our responsibility to assist those that are not so fortunate. And we believe that as a team of young entrepreneurial women, we should help all women to achieve their full potential and live long, healthy and rewarding lives. It's all about working together!


With these beliefs in mind, we provide support through the following channels:
 

The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF)
 

OCRF

In Australia, one woman dies every ten hours of ovarian cancer. There is no simple or effective screening test for the disease, which means that most women diagnosed are already in the advanced stages of the disease.

There is a marked difference in survival rates if ovarian cancer is detected early. That's why the OCRF is committed to developing an early detection test and improving the mortality rate and long-term wellbeing of women with ovarian cancer.

Edible Blooms has partnered with the OCRF to help raise funds for this much needed research. Launching the partnership with a $5,000 donation in March 2011, Edible Blooms continues to support the OCRF by donating $10 from the sale of each special edition Silver Ribbon Bouquet to the cause. You can view and purchase these bouquets here, in Medium and Large sizes.

To learn more about the OCRF and make a donation, visit www.ocrf.com.au
 

Opportunity International Australia (Opportunity)
 

OIA

Opportunity International Australia provides small loans to families in developing countries to help them start a business, earn an income and leave poverty behind. By helping a mother buy a sewing machine to start a tailoring business or a father buy seeds to plant a vegetable garden, small loans enable them to transform their lives, their children’s futures and their communities. With 98% of loans recycled, the impact continues year after year.

In June 2010, Edible Blooms donated $10,000 to Opportunity to help microfinance clients in West Timor. With 98% of loans paid back and recycled, these funds will continue to assist communities in poverty for years to come.

In-Kind Donations


Edible Blooms is committed to supporting the local communities of our stores in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Each year we donate products to local community organisations, schools and charities to assist their fundraising efforts. In 2009 and 2011, Edible Blooms also donated money from the sale of blooms to the recovery funds established for the 2009 Victorian Bushfires and 2011 Queensland Floods.

Please note that due to an ever increasing number of requests, we have actually already reached capacity for donations this year, we will however be opening up again for expressions of interest in January 2015.

When it comes to showing our staff the recognition they deserve the first thought really should be gifts for employees. Of course right?! Because who doesn’t want to receive a gift? People who don’t like gifts are probably doing something very different right now than reading an article about giving gifts printed on a gifting website though so we don’t really need to worry about them. We all like to feel needed, appreciated, wanted… desired… special- um but back to the article, because feeling this way isn’t about needing an ego boost, it’s often just the perfect way to get that motivation to keep striving for more. And really that’s all an employer wants of their employees no? ...

It’s spring!! It’s happening it’s here, the pollen is in the air and we are all sneezing, the birds are chirping and simultaneously starting to swoop us and we are all starting to sweat from our sweltering Aussie heat but none of that matters! Because it’s spring and everything is beautiful. So Greenies, stay with us, because this one is for you. As many side effects that come with spring (such as birds actually turning on the human race) we ignore these because the days are brighter, the weather is warmer and nature is quite literally blossoming which means if you’ve got the green thumb it’s time to turn your attention to your Spring Garden. At Edible B...

Have you ever thought about what kind of chocolate personality you are? We know, we’ve lost sleep over it for years as well but never fear! If you thought Zodiac signs were the key to your personality you’ve clearly never thought about a chocolate quiz, because this is the real stuff. Yes zodiac signs are of course completely real, and if you are a non-believer you’re probably Capricorn but that’s okay, it’s just the sceptic in you and you were born that way, no judgement from us. So Zodiac signs or no zodiac signs you still absolutely have a chocolate personality and it is undeniably important you find out what it is immediately and of course the way to d...

Our dearest, most valued readers, we have gathered you here today to ask but a simply task of you, to answer the question that has plagued us for centuries, drum roll please… are you a donut person or an eclair person? At Edible Blooms we only ask the most serious of questions, and for this one you really need to go so deep into your soul you should pass some chakras on the way. Donuts and Eclairs are the steaks of dessert, they are the very foundation on which the industry of desserts were built, and yes, perhaps this is historically incorrect, but we are talking about the king and queen of the pastries people facts aren’t important. And we don’t think you don’t know but for cl...
