ProFlowers got with the ProGram

FYI to all who read the blog the other day about ProFlowers, they did, in fact pull their advertising from the Rush Limbaugh show.  And they posted the following comment on our blog, so we wanted to honor their decision by passing it along to all our readers.

At ProFlowers, our mission is to delight our customers with fresh and long lasting flowers, and that is our singular focus each and every day. We do not base our advertising decisions to align with any particular political view or opinion as our employees and customers are as diverse as the USA. Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. As such, ProFlowers has suspended advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.

Why ProFlowers Is Embarrassing Me. (Hint: It’s Not The Terrible Arrangement In The Watering Can)

Don’t get me wrong.The pseudo-english-garden-in-a-pink-watering-can is pretty bad. But no, Proflowers.Com is making floral professionals mad by sponsoring Rush Limbaugh’s radio show despite the hideous garbage he’s been spewing. Floral Professionals cannot be lumped into one political group.  We can, however generally be united under the banner of “flowers and floral designers’ job is to make people happy.” We’re a pro-happiness bunch.

Our job as floral designers is to enhance life. To make it more beautiful, more meaningful and more fragrant. Not to spread ugliness and negativity. Come on ProFlowers, get with the ProGram.  Be pro-flowers, pro-love, pro-happiness.

How could this make you anything but happy?
