Two major fruit basket companies impart awareness pertaining to critical causes during the month of March. Edible Arrangements observes the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s MS Awareness Month. While Harry & David recognized International Women’s Day on March 8, 2013. Taking distinctive approaches to create awareness, these major fruit basket companies portray their leadership in supporting the cause.
The Edible Arrangement’s franchised stores in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire are donating $5 from the sales of its Orange Blossom® collection during the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s MS Awareness Month. In 2011, Edible Arrangements raised $10,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
