Teleflora Partners With GLSEN For Second Year To Honor Teachers Nationwide

The initiative is part of Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8-12.

Since 1953, National Teacher Appreciation Day and Week have been recognizing the lasting contributions educators make in the lives of American youth. These annual celebrations are organized by the National Education Association and the National Parent Teacher Association. Teachers play a major role in building brighter futures for our children in communities around the country.


This May, Teleflora, the world’s leading floral delivery service and GLSEN, the leading education organization focused on ensuring safe and LGBTQ-inclusive K-12 schools, are partnering for the second consecutive year to thank teachers who are making a difference in children’s lives.


During Teacher Appreciation Week (May 8 to 12, 2017), anyone who purchases Teleflora’s Be Happy® Bouquet with Roses — a Teleflora “Fan Favorite” —  will receive 20 percent off the purchase price. Teleflora will then donate 10 percent of all sales of this bouquet to advancing GLSEN’s mission: that students of every diverse school community are valued and respected, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression.


“Year after year, LGBTQ students tell us that supportive teachers can make all the difference in their lives, especially when things get tough," said Dr. Eliza Byard, GLSEN Executive Director. “With the generous support of Teleflora, we are honored to share our thanks for these supportive educators, along with thousands of students, parents, and community leaders with a gift that gives back.”


Teleflora’s Be Happy Bouquet with Roses (Available on starting at $39.95) is a cheerful bouquet that is sure to put a smile on any educator's face in these especially difficult times. Joyful yellow roses, a symbol of friendship, and cheerful daisies, a symbol of optimism, are beautifully arranged in a smiley mug that can be kept and used as a keepsake.
