For nearly ten years, the American Heart
Association in Rhode Island ran a Valentine’s Day program called Hearts in
Bloom. It’s 2-fold: to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke during
February, American Heart Month – and to raise funds to support their programs.
The program grew over the years and became
workplace based as company coordinators would take orders for bouquets of
beautiful red tulips. Thousands each year would receive their minimalist gift also
with the knowledge that their “giver” had supported a cause to help save lives.
After a few years, the AHA added a companion “executive”
program of Hearts in Bloom provided boxes of long-stemmed red roses for a much
higher cost, and usually most company orders had a few of these sprinkled in,
too. Hundreds of volunteers each year would drive the group tulip orders to the
companies and hand-deliver the roses to individuals.
After so many years of success, the controlling
powers that be – in Dallas – for the AHA’s corporate offices decided they didn’t
want to support the program because Hearts in Bloom was not available in every
state and in every chapter. So be it. As usual, any discussion fell on deaf
corporate ears. The sad loss of Hearts in Bloom is remembered by many.
