Joined forces against the corona virus
On Wednesday 18th of March, a group of people from inside and outside the floriculture industry joined forces against the corona virus. This newly formed network of volunteers set up a project to bring a positive message of happiness and energy to the entire world. The name for this project is #flowers4oxygen. The words flowers and oxygen are the basis of our common message. Flowers stand for happiness and positivism. Oxygen is something we really need, now that we have been hit hard by the coronavirus.

Positive signals to conquer corona
The coronavirus (causing COVID-19) can affect the amount of oxygen in our lungs and airways. It makes breathing very hard. For all those who try to eredicate this virus, it is a hard time as well. Not only for the population who is forced to social distancing, but also for the caretakers who are constantly at risk while saving people. We all need some kind of positivity to keep the faith. #flowers4oxygen started this movement with the message that we need positive signals for all who are willing to conquer the virus, who are helping out in any kind of way: staying at home, helping others, taking care of others. Flowers stand for happiness and energy. And that is exactly what the world needs.

Together we stand strong
#flowers4oxygen is meant to send a positive message to all caretakers and to those who are infected by the virus. Together we stand strong and with united forces we are powerful. Let’s all share our positive messages and energy and show the world we care with #flowers4oxygen.
Safety first!
Pay attention: whatever you do, your own safety and that of others comes first! Be sure to comply with the regulations of your own country or region and think about each other. Our health is the highest priority. #flowers4oxygen
