Giving from the Heart

Each year on Valentine’s Day, hundred of flowers, candy and cards are exchanged between loved once.  It is estimated that:

  • 224 million roses are grown specifically for Valentine’s Day
  • $1.6 billion will be spent on candy
  • 6 million people will propose
  • 151 million cards will be exchanged
  • $4.4 billion will be spent on diamonds, gold and silver

This year for Valentine’s Day, also think about the children in foster care who would enjoy a gift from the heart.  For ideas on how you can help, visit the Meet a Needs page or contact your local Community Resource Specialist.
