LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The Children's Heart Foundation today announced a new partnership with ProFlowers(R) -- the online fresh flower marketplace -- just in time for Mother's Day! Beginning in May 2008, shoppers can visit http://www.proflowers.com/CHF and choose from a variety of beautiful, fresh-from-the-field flower arrangements. Ten dollars from each purchase will benefit The Children's Heart Foundation.
