Lindsay® Olives’ fragrant, modestly priced wreaths support Meals On Wheels
Lafayette, Calif. (November 4, 2010) - Holiday shoppers looking for one-of-a-kind gifts that are green, give back and fit tight budgets will find the perfect solution at http://www.lindsayolives.com/wreath. Lindsay Olives is offering fragrant, beautiful wreaths whose purchase helps eliminate hunger through their partnership with Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA).
Lindsay Olives offers compassion-minded shoppers two sizes of gorgeous wreaths - handmade with fresh olive, bay and eucalyptus branches holiday wreaths. The wreaths make wonderful holiday décor, whether hanging as a sweet-smelling front door welcome or gracing a table as a natural centerpiece.
Proceeds from the wreath sales go to MOWAA, the oldest and largest national organization in the country composed of and representing local, community-based Senior Nutrition Programs.
The gift-ready wreaths are available in two sizes. The lovely 12-inch round wreath is just $30; the larger 16-inch wreath is only $35. The wreaths are handmade to order from freshly harvested California olive branches, along with branches from bay and eucalyptus trees.
Simple handmade gifts that are beautiful and benefit hard-working charities such as MOWAA are more relevant and appreciated than ever before. The smaller wreath is perfect as table décor for both special and everyday gatherings, and is especially beautiful when paired with a glowing holiday globe or festive arrangement of votive candles, seasonal fruits and nuts. The larger wreath is a delightful front door welcome during the holiday season.
The branches are harvested from California groves and, over time, dry to a beautiful silvery green. Fragrant bay and eucalyptus branches add that special holiday aroma. Each wreath is packaged gift-ready in holiday red tissue paper with a personalized gift card and care instructions.
Wreaths can be ordered at lindsayolives.com/wreath or by calling (800) 765-2029 . The 12-inch round wreath is just $30; the 16-inch wreath is only $35 plus shipping, with delivery until December 31, 2010.
"Hunger is particularly painful during the holidays - even one hungry person is one too many. Our partnership with The Meals On Wheels Association of America is a simple way for holiday shoppers to give natural, meaningful gifts and help fill empty stomachs," said Robin Robinson, vice president of marketing, Lindsay Olives. "Our wreaths make it possible for gift givers to continue to support this vital program."
The olive tree is one of the oldest trees on Earth. Archives of ancient civilizations dating back thousands of years refer to the olive branch as a symbol of peace and goodwill.
