A Vision for Giving Back

Thank you to everyone at Project Lyme and the Bay Area Lyme Foundation for repurposing the event flowers from your Inaugural Gala at the The Ziegfeld Ballroom. We admire your mission to eradicate epidemic of tick-borne diseases through awareness and education, support to cutting-edge science, and advocacy for solutions to end suffering.

The luxe orchid arrangements made it a significantly happier week for your New York neighbors in need at Chelsea's VISIONS at Selis Manor. We think it's chic to share with VISIONS because of the important work they are committed to on behalf of older adults who are blind or are experiencing severed visual impairment in New York City. In 2012, VISIONS Center on Aging became the first senior center for line and low visions seniors.

As one of the original eight Innovative Senior Centers, they are proud to be a part of the City's Age-Friendly NYC Initiative. In the United States, they are the first city-funded senior center exclusively designed for older adults who are blind or are experiencing severed visual impairment. The program features a daily, hot dinner meal and a Senior Buddy Program for our 800 of our community's visually impaired seniors. Customized services and programs range from benefits assistance and fully accessible computer classes to evidence-based fitness programs, verbally described movies and brain fitness.

There are so many ways our client's’ flowers can bring a spot of joy and create an immediate emotional health benefit for so many people whether it is by sight, smell, or touch — the acts of kindness and generosity bring nature indoors, create meaningful social impact, and launch a ripple effect across the community.

Thank you to the board members of Project Lyme and Bay Area Lyme Foundation for paying it forward with flowers.
