• 12Friends isn't just a flower club...

    IT'S A FRIENDSHIP MOVEMENT!

  • BENEFITS OF 12FRIENDS

     

    12Friends is a social networking flower club for anyone who wants to share in the joy of giving and receiving flowers every month. Groups can include up to 12 of your friends. No one knows whose turn it will be or when their flowers will arrive - but one lucky day each month one friend will feel special and loved by the group!

    • Be a part of a loving and emotionally nurturing social circle;
       
    • You don’t have to be in a romantic relationship to experience receiving flowers;
       
    • You don’t have to wait around for someone else to decide to be romantic;
       
    • Enhance your relationships and stay close to people you might not otherwise see like business contacts or old friends, anywhere in the world;
       
    • Reboot the fun in existing social circles like book clubs, sororities, and offices.
    And,12Friends doesn't compete with or replace the flowers your partner will give you because we deliver everything on random “just because” days - whereas your significant other is likely to send flowers on special occasions like your birthday, anniversary and holidays.

    FLOWERS DELIVERED TO ONE PERSON IN YOUR GROUP EVERY MONTH

    1

    START A GROUP

    Decide how many friends will be in your group and how long you want to play. For example, if you have 3 friends in your year-long group, each friend will receive flowers 4 times per year - that's once for every season of flowers!

Or you can add this information in the Notes section at Checkout. Please let us know any other details we may need, such as any flower allergies, and where to leave the package if not home.

  • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

     

    1. CAN I INCLUDE FRIENDS WHO LIVE OUT OF STATE OR IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?

     

    Yes! 12Friends can deliver flowers anywhere in the world where there is a local florist. International deliveries may incur additional rates.

     

    2. CAN I GIVE MY FLOWERS TO ANOTHER PERSON INSTEAD OF RECEIVING THEM MYSELF?

     

    Yes! You can create your group however you want, but keep in mind you won't get to experience the full effect of being in the group and getting surprised with flowers. We love your generosity but we also want you to have fun!

     

    3. CAN I START MORE THAN ONE GROUP AT A TIME?

     

    Yes! Of course you can have multiple friendship circles going at the same time. This might be a good time to reassign your deliveries if you so desire to give more than you like to receive.

     

    4. DOES MY GROUP PAY ALL AT ONCE OR DOES EACH FRIEND PAY INDIVIDUALLY?

     

    Due to this being a startup and to simplify things for everyone, we will receive the full payment upfront from one person in the group prior to the group starting - we call this person who starts the group the Root Friend. The Root Friend will be responsible for collecting their money from each friend - via cash/check or through a payment app like PayPal or Cash App, or however you typically get reimbursed by your friends for group gifts. The total cost of each arrangement with 6% sales tax comes to $74.20 for 12Friends and $132.50 for 12Friends Luxury.  

     

    5. WHY ARE WE BEING CHARGED SALES TAX IF WE LIVE OUTSIDE OF MICHIGAN?

     

    As of June 2018, the Supreme Court ruled that online retailers are subject to paying sales tax in the state where they have a physical presence even if the client lives outside of that state. We need to comply with these new rules - luckily Michigan has one of the lowest sales tax rates in the country at 6%. Tax-exempt organizations may send a check payment minus the tax to 12Friends, 6725 Daly Rd. #251952, West Bloomfield, MI 48325. Include a letter with your Tax Exempt ID# and all delivery addresses and contact information to reach you via phone and email. Any questions? Send us a message and we will get back to you.

     

    6. WHAT IF ONE OF MY FRIENDS IS MOVING DURING THE YEAR AND NEEDS TO CHANGE THE DELIVERY ADDRESS?

     

    No problem. Just send us a message with the new address and we will make a note of it. Also, if you know anyone will be away for an extended period of time, send us a message with the block out dates. If you get your flowers while on vacay and arrive home to a dead arrangement at your door, don’t worry. Send us a message and we will handle it.

     

    7. CAN I SEND FLOWERS TO MYSELF?

     

    Of course! We love Gifts-to-Self! Simply buy a package for however long you want to receive flowers during the year and enjoy the feeling of being surprised with flowers!!! It's the perfect way to shower yourself with love all year long!

    SUBJECT: Invitation to join my 12Friends group!

     

    Dear Friend,

    I am starting a 12Friends group as the Root Friend, and would like to invite you to join my group! We can have up to 12 of our friends in our group.

    12Friends is a new way to be social - by giving and receiving flowers every month, we can be there for each another and strengthen our friendship circle.

    The fun part is no one knows whose turn it will be or when their flowers will arrive. One lucky day every month one of our friends will be surprised with flowers - Just think how happy we will be when we’ve made our friend’s day or they’ve made ours!!!

    All you have to do is reply back and let me know you’re in! I will start the group and you can pay me back your share. The cost is split equally among everyone in the group.

    Check out
    www.12friends.com - we can choose a package based on how many people are in our group and how often each of us wants to receive flowers.

     

    12Friends is more than a flower club... It’s a friendship movement!!!

    I am so excited to be your Root Friend!!!

    XOXO,

    (Your name)

  • WHO WE ARE

    Jodi Coden

    THE SEED
    (FOUNDER & THE VERY FIRST ROOT FRIEND)

    My husband is a florist so when we were first dating, Jon would send me flowers at work every now and again - especially when he was in the doghouse. It always caught me off guard when the package arrived, and I LOVED feeling special in the office!

     

    I would always think to myself how every woman should know what it feels like to be surprised with flowers when she least expects it. It really brightened my day!
    And yes, we ALWAYS made up!

     

    12Friends is about women empowering each other with flowers. We don't need to wait around for our significant others to goof up and end up in the doghouse - we can do this socially for ourselves. Most importantly, you don't even need to be in a romantic relationship - single women deserve flowers too!

     

    That's the beauty of 12Friends -
    Your 12Friends will always be there for you!

     

    I am so excited to be your Root Friend!!!

     

    XOXO,

     

    Jodi
