Mums for Mums: Townsville Quota Turns Flowers into Cash

The Townsville Quota club in Queensland, Australia, celebrates Mother’s Day with a lucrative chrysanthemum sale. For the past quarter century, the club has gathered the day before the sale to sort and bunch an ocean of mums—frequently revived by cups of tea, coffee, and munchies, of course! Then on Mother’s Day, sporting their blue Quota shirts, members fan out throughout Townsville to sell the flowers. This GREAT IDEA fundraiser brings in nearly Aus.$2,000 each year for club service and offers the community a way to get those last minute mums for their mums.
