Sure, it’s going to be hard on everyone to be apart this Sunday, but think about all of our healthcare heroes who will be working on the frontlines this Mother’s Day. To show their gratitude, local houseplant haven The Sill and its orchid partner Just Add Ice are donating 10,000 orchids to frontline healthcare workers at Mount Sinai’s seven NYC hospitals. They delivered the first 5,000 yesterday and will be distributing the rest today.

Since both The Sill (their founding philosophy is “plants make people happy”) and Just Add Ice are fully aware of the healing powers of plants, they wanted to find a way to give back. Though they are both national companies, they partnered with Frontline Strong Relief to help facilitate the local deliveries to The Mount Sinai Hospital, Mount Sinai Brooklyn, Mount Sinai Morningside, Mount Sinai Queens, Mount Sinai South Nassau, Mount Sinai West, Mount Sinai Beth Israel.

The Sill was founded in New York City in 2012 and currently has three brick-and-mortar stores here, so the project was especially meaningful. “Plants provide mood-boosting benefits and can help alleviate stress and anxiety. Working with Just Add Ice to coordinate the donation of 10,000 orchids is our way of thanking the frontline for their extraordinary care and service to our great city in this desperate time of need,” said Eliza Blank, founder and CEO of The Sill. Likewise, Mirelle Phillips, founder and co-director of Frontline Strong Relief, noted: “The orchid is a symbol of beauty and resilience in the natural world, which is such a meaningful and timely gesture.”
