Morning Money Matters: Caring Rose Week

November 20, 2008; News 12 This Morning

In this Morning Money Matters, we're looking at matters of the heart. They say the way to a person's heart is through their stomach, so here's the deal: You bring two cans of food plus $10 to a participating florist, and you get a dozen roses.

Not bad huh?

Roses can be expensive; a dozen can be 50 bucks or more.

It could be a good deal for you, but it's an even better one for a local charity.
During "Caring Rose Week, " the Golden Harvest Food Bank gets all these donated cans.

Ok, so maybe you don't have time to swing by the store to get some food. No big deal. You can just give them $12, and 10 of that will go to the food bank.

If you are interested, you need to act fast. "Caring Rose Week ends Saturday, November 22nd.

So, a charity is happy.

You save money, so you're happy.

And your sweetie, well, they're really happy.

I don't see any thorns here.
