Empower With Flowers to Support Barnardos Australia

Prime Video’s latest initiative, Empower with Flowers, in partnership with Floraly, aims to provide vital support to Barnardos Australia. With each purchase of a bouquet from Floraly, funds will be directed towards assisting women who have escaped domestic and family violence. The initiative will aid Barnardos Australia’s efforts in providing secure shelters, counselling services, and legal aid to these women.

Australians are encouraged to participate by gifting native flower bouquets to their loved ones from September 1st to September 30th, 2023. The initiative covers the entire nation, with bouquet options ranging from $65 to $109. Each purchase will contribute $20, and Prime Video in Australia will match this donation. This collaboration is inspired by the Amazon Original series, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, a tale of female resilience and the strength to overcome adversity.
