Ten Thousand Colombian Flowers for Hillary Duff


    BOGOTA, Colombia, Aug. 14 /CNW/ --Ten thousand Colombian-grown flowers
will regale the young North American actress, Hillary Duff, during her visit
to Colombia on August 14th, by invitation of the Mayor of Bogota, Samuel
Moreno, to become the Goodwill Youth Ambassador and kicking off her "Blessings
in a Backpack" foundation activities in Colombia.

    Augusto Solano, President of Asocolflores, the Association of Colombian
Flower Exporters, said its trade association's companies will contribute the
beautiful Colombian roses, carnations, alstroemerias, gerberas and
chrysanthemums that will decorate the many venues to be visited by one of
North America's most well-known and respected young artists.

    Solano added that Duff's visit takes on a special significance, "She is
much more than just a recognized pop singer at the young age of 21; she has
also established her own foundation that benefits children who live below the
poverty line, an ideal that is shared by Asocolflores members." He stated that
the Colombia floriculture trade association has implemented many education and
social programs for the benefit and care of the nearly 20,000 children of
floriculture workers, while their parents work on Asocolflores affiliated
flower farms.
