Chris always sums up Spare a Rose in the same way: “It’s so simple. So sticky. And so important.”
Because it is.
February is fast-approaching (Don’t act like you don’t know – it’s October today! Time refuses to stand still.) and now is the time to start thinking about how you and your company can participate in the Spare a Rose campaign next Valentine’s Day. February 1 – 14th.
Yeah, I said you and your company. This topic came up on a call a few months ago, about opening the campaign to offices and employers. “Earn a casual dress day for your office!” sort of sentiments (except when I pitched this idea to a super cool Austin PR firm, it sort of backfired because their dress code is already casual, so I recommended a Wear a Tux to Work day). Put an empty flower vase on the front desk with a sign that says, “Best bouquet of roses I’ve ever received!!” with a link to SpareARose.org. There are a lot of fun ways to bring awareness and funding for Life for a Child.
Also, now is a perfect time to bring up Spare A Rose to media outlets who might be planning their editorial calendars for next year already. If you’d like to see the campaign highlighted in your magazine of choice, reach out to the editor and let them know about it.
Want some beautiful images? Here you go.
It’s a simple sentiment with tremendous outcome: spare a rose, save a child. Thanks for thinking ahead to February and being part of the solution.
