Students sell Valentine's Day flowers for scholarship fund

- Flower giving on Valentine's Day is so popular at one school, a student invented a way to make the giving process much easier. 

Every year the French class at Berkley Prep sells flowers to students to raise money for their Students Helping Students scholarships.

Student Abby Forman streamlined the process of buying flowers from the school by creating an app. Students can use the app instead of filling out a form or emailing an order.

She calls the free app Flower Sale.

"With the app, you just buy it in and just send it and forget about it," Abby said.

"I think that it is really cool that she is able to do that," said student Grace Patterson. "I have no idea where I would even begin making an app. She's so talented and smart it's awesome."

The idea has taken off with students.

"It was really nice of her," said student Nicky Bonini. "I think it was a good idea."

"It's easier than filling out an actual form," added student Dani Sariana.

Student Jacqueline Hennecke says "It will be really cool to have a nice place to organize all of these flower sales to make it easier to access them."

Helping make Valentine's and beyond a little easier to give flowers to that special someone. Abby says she learned how to program the app at Hillel Academy.
