Blooming Inclusion

May 21 @ 11:00 am - May 28 @ 4:00 pm

Blooming Inlcusion! Forever Memorial Flowers and Special Olympics Kansas are excited to announce our new partnership entitled Blooming Inclusion, dedicated to repurposing artificial flowers for a meaningful cause. The partnership will kick off at Zeck Ford Dealership in Leavenworth on May 21 and go to May 27, operating from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. May 28th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. will be the last day to show your support.

Forever Memorial Flowers specializes in salvaging flowers discarded after five days in national cemeteries, breathing new life into them and offering them at discounted prices. This partnership exemplifies a commitment to inclusion, sustainability, and community support. These sales booths will be completely run by our volunteers.

Pricing Information

With three size categories available – small, medium, and large – priced at $5, $10, and $25 respectively, it is affordable for everyone to honor their loved ones with beautiful floral arrangements. Plus, 30% of the proceeds from each sale will be donated directly to Special Olympics Kansas.

Quotes and About

“We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with Special Olympics Kansas,” says Brandon Clasen of Forever Memorial Flowers. “By repurposing abandoned flowers and making them accessible to everyone, we aim to bring joy and beauty to our community while supporting a worthy cause.”

National cemeteries typically permit flowers to remain for five days before disposal. Recognizing the potential to extend the lifespan of these floral arrangements, Forever Memorial Flowers steps in to rescue and repurpose them, ensuring they do not go to waste. These repurposed flowers are then sold at significantly reduced prices, with proceeds benefiting Special Olympics Kansas.

“We are excited to join forces,” says John Lair, CEO and President at Special Olympics Kansas. “This partnership underscores our shared values of inclusivity and community support. Together, we will make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities.”
