UrbanStems has a new partner in bouquet delivery.
For the month of March, the D.C. flower delivery startup is collaborating with Bumble, the social app offering dating features where women make the first move, as well as friend and job finding capabilities.
Throughout the month, UrbanStems will be offering the Bumble, a bouquet filled with roses in Bumble’s specific shade of yellow. It also comes with an option to upgrade to a kit called The Hive, which includes a vase, pins and a deck of cards with thought-provoking questions.
The offering comes around International Women’s Day, which is March 8. March is also Women’s History Month. With each order, $5 will be donated to Women for Women International, which helps women survivors of war and conflict.
To celebrate International Women’s Day and month, we’ve partnered with our friends at @Bumble. For every order of The Bumble bouquet or The Hive, we’ll donate $5 to Women for Women International, an organization helping women affected by conflict and war. https://t.co/LzB6yAeFOu pic.twitter.com/stWMejHGdV

UrbanStems Head of Press & Partnerships for UrbanStems Megan Darmody said 67 percent of its deliveries are from women to other women.
“We hope women use these beautiful bouquets to celebrate each other this month, because they will not only brighten the recipient’s day, but they will also help raise money for women across the globe,” Sarah Sawaf, Strategic Partnerships Manager for Bumble, said in a statement.
