Petals Flower Co. – Have a Heart Fundraiser for the Dufferin Children’s Fund

Petals Flower Co. has partnered with Dufferin Child and Family Services for this year’s “Have A Heart” Campaign!  As a local business Petals loves to look for ways to give back to our community that has so graciously embraced and supported their little flower farm. The “Have A Heart” Campaign was designed to do just that, give back while raising awareness for a local Charity, Support Group, or Service. Through the campaign they are selling Petals “Have A Heart” t-shirts, hooded sweat shirts and canvas market bags featuring this year’s original flower filled heart and all net proceeds will be donated to Dufferin Child and Family Services’ charity, the Dufferin Children’s Fund.

The beautiful new flower filled heart, designed by local tattoo artist Missie Powers​, is sure to impress! With 3 options to choose from; the classic Petals t-shirt, the new long sleeve hoodie, and fabulous Petals market bag we’re sure you’re going to want to make room in your closet for these beauties!

Head on over to https://petals-flower-co.myshopify.com to shop for your “Have A Heart” items today. PLEASE NOTE: All items will be available to purchase from Jan 16th until Valentine’s Day and will begin shipping out to customers Feb 8th.

Feel awesome knowing your purchase is helping to raise awareness for DCAFS and supporting the Dufferin Children’s Fund​.

Transgender Day of Remembrance – November 20

Raising of the transgender pride flag was met with cheers rather than silence to make noise around violence against the transgender community.

Transgender Day of Remembrance is a day to commemorate the lost lives due to TRANSPHOBIA and to celebrate the RESILIENCE of community.
