Valentine's Day Charity Auction: $1,000 Charity Bouquet, One Dollar Reserve

Each week in New Zealand, 12 babies are born with broken hearts. This Valentine’s Day, you can help these little hearts, while sharing your own with the one you love, through this amazing charity auction!

It’s the $1k charity bouquet, 10 Dozen (120) premium grade NZ red roses that’s going, going, gone, starting at only a dollar reserve on Trade Me.

This exquisite bouquet is being donated by Market Flowers Auckland with all the proceeds from the auction going to @Heart, a wonderful organisation who focuses on those who are living with a childhood heart condition that has existed from conception or as a result of rheumatic fever, cardiomyopathy, or Kawasaki disease.

Market Flowers Auckland is an online florist, specialising in delivering the freshest market flowers to your friends and loved ones throughout Auckland. With 12 years experience, Market Flowers Auckland has built a reputation for delivering beautiful, fragrant and longer lasting bouquets; it’s labour of love and events for a good cause such as this auction is something which makes our jobs that much more enjoyable.

“Childhood heart conditions hits close to home for a number of our staff here at Market Flowers Auckland which is why we’re all looking forward to raising as much money for @Heart as we can. Market Flowers Auckland and @Heart would also like to ask everyone who visits the auction or perhaps gets outbid to have a heart this Valentine’s Day and consider making a donation via the @Heart donation web page. Your donations would be greatly appreciated and go a long way to making a huge difference in the lives of many kiwi families”, said Market Flowers Auckland CEO, Gavin Harris.
