Have you ever heard of the Roses for a Cause program? The Roses for a Cause program is something Jackson & Perkins has done for a few years now. If you buy one of the rosebushes listed in the program, a percentage of the money goes to help a specified cause. Thus, buying one or more of these fine rosebushes not only adds beauty to your garden but also lends a hand at helping out our world.
Popular Cause Roses
Here is a listing of the current rosebushes in the program:
- Florence Nightingale Rose (Floribunda Rose) - Ten percent of net sales is donated to the Florence Nightingale International Foundation, which is devoted to the mission of advancing nursing education, research, and service for the public good.
