Flowers from the Heart

Patriotboy points out a wonderful business with its politics in the right place:
A few days ago a friend of mine asked if I wanted to chip in for flowers for Lila Lipscomb, the mother in Fahrenheit 911 who lost her son in Iraq. Although I doubted she'd be able to get an address, I said yes--Lila's story was very moving. I should have never doubted my friend; she's incredible. She wrote Michael Moore and he forwarded her email to Lila, who was touched that her story had moved people she'd never met.
My friend ordered the flowers and when the florist saw the note, he made the biggest bouquet possible and refused payment.

My family will henceforth be getting flowers sent from The Organic Bouquet.
