Cotacachi roses are a great way to start the new year

Merri and I received a gift of Cotacachi holiday roses on December 9. They were  sent by a rose plantation owner we know from Cotacachi Ecuador.   Here were the roses on my dining room table that day.


We thought,  “How nice let’s repay the favor and see if we can sell a few roses for these people and raise some money for Ecuador’s poor at the same time.

We are not talking about little, dinky roses that never open either.  These are real roses…full..and aromatic as you can see in my hand.


I ordered more myself  and my next  batch of fresh Ecuador Christmas roses looked like this.

What started as a small simple idea mushroomed!   The  plantation was truly overwhelmed. Sales passed 9,000 roses ordered  in just a week.

We are delighted as this raised almost $3,600 for our foundation that helps Ecuador’s poor.

Plus this really helped the hard workers in Ecuador’s rose business as
sales  during the economic downturn have been slow.

Due to this demand the Ecuador rose plantation extends its offer.   50 fresh Ecuador roses can be delivered  to your home, December 30, before the new year,  on all orders that are received before 6pm Wednesday, December 24, 2008.

To order see  Ecuador New Year’s Roses

All the donated funds go directly to the poor in Ecuador.


You can still order Ecuador New Year’s  roses for three more days (to 6PM  Wednesday December 24, 2008) at Ecuador New Year’s Roses
