It was a year ago that I first wrote about the Surrey Memorial Hospital‘s Tulips for Tomorrow campaign.

Now, 12 months, 100,000 bulbs and $420,000 in donations later, they are initiating the campaign for another season.

Your donation will put Surrey in bloom when spring rolls around, and will fund new medical equipment for our hospital… …There is a change this year. The tulip bulbs are being made available for sale (while supplies last, of course!), with 100% of the proceeds coming back to the Foundation. Each package of 10 tulip bulbs is selling for $10 at five Surrey locations – 99 Nursery and Florist, Art’s Nursery, David Hunter Garden Centers, Central City, and Guildford Town Centre.

Tulips for Tomorrow supports the hospital and also beautifies the community. They also have a shiney new WordPress site for the campaign that also allows you to place a donation online. SMH continues to be important to me (read my history of the hospital) since not only was I born there, my niece and nephews were as well.
