How COVID-19 Affected Us
We are in this together
About COVID-19, how it has impacted the flower industry, the Happy Bunch team, and how thankful we are for all of you.
It’s not all rosy
The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the safety and livelihood of many people, business and industries – flower industry included. From florists to flower growers and farms, the pandemic has impacted our flower industry across the world, and all of us here at Happy Bunch. With international shipments delayed, short supply of flowers and hike in prices, we had to adapt and adjust accordingly, all while still providing all of you an affordable option to spread love. To infuse some much-needed positivism through these times, flowers can help remind us to show love, friendship, gratitude, support, consolation and hope.
But you make it better
Thank you so much for all your understanding and support during these incredibly unusual and challenging times. At Happy Bunch, every decision we make is focused on you and your experience, putting in extra effort to ensure you are happy. Your overwhelming support in purchases and messages have helped our business through these tough times, and we just wanted to let you know how grateful we are. Most of our flowers, plants and gift box item suppliers are from local businesses, so you’ve been indirectly giving back to them too! Shout out to all our local partners and suppliers who’ve also been so supportive of our journey, and working so closely with us. We couldn’t have done it without all of you! #KitaJagaKita #SapotLokal
The safety of our dear customers, partners, suppliers and the HB team are of utmost importance to us. Which is why we have taken necessary health and safety measures to play our part in keeping everyone healthy and safe. The entire HB team has to take daily temperature checks, check in MySejahtera, wear masks and follow all social distancing guidelines. We’ve provided everyone with their personal set of tools and hand sanitisers, as well as implemented regular station sanitisation of all frequently touched surfaces. All guidelines are also strictly enforced to our delivery partners, including contactless drop off points and frequent sanitisation. We’re committed to doing things right, and if that fails, making it right.
Let positivity bloom
With this period of uncertainty, the feelings of stress, anxiety of illness, loss, and uncertainty is being felt universally, and people are turning to flowers for comfort. We are so inspired by all of our dear customer who send so much love and joy to their loved ones, even while being apart. From birthday Gift Boxes to their friends, or Flower Bunches to their frontliner friends… We can feel the joy radiating from the recipients and with that, we’re reminded daily of our core mission – helping you be someone’s sunshine. There is great power in giving the gift of flowers, and Happy Bunch is here to provide a simple and affordable way to encourage cheer, love and hope during a time that can be so challenging.
Now more than ever, we are convinced that fresh flowers and thoughtful gifting are a necessity of life and even more so in times of uncertainty, hardship and fear. The simple act of sending someone a gift, or treating yourself to flowers can have an immediate positive impact on mood and emotions. We truly can make a difference in someone’s life – one flower at a time.
