On Monday, January 1, 2007 – I called FTD after looking online for prices of roses and asked them for a quote for 250,000 roses 45 days out from Valentines Day.. the original idea was to send each troop in the gulf region a Rose and a Valentines Day card. The person at the other end of the phone was dead silent at the request. As I explained it was for the troops she said I should Set up a myspace page for it… so I did and I started www.myspace.com/aroseofthanks on 01/01/07. It was A Rose of Thanks only website until August of that year!
Also on January 1st I found the official rose color that would represent A Rose of Thanks:
The Peach Rose = Thanks and Gratitude!
