At the University of Lodz during defending diploma theses, members of the examination board receive cards created by proteges of three foundations from their students. A group of professors were originators of this action. As is customary, each year students buy flowers, which they give their promoters and reviewers of BA and MA theses, and the chairman of the board as an expression of their gratitude. It's a very nice gesture. However, buying three bouquets of flowers is a big expenditure. One should consider if flowers are the only possible way to say thank you and express your appreciation? We say no to giving flowers ... and we help those who need it most.
