One unfortunate day, Larson Jay found himself in the hospital. Thanks to the support and help
of doctors, nurses, family and friends he was able to recover, but not before a great
idea sprang into being.
Family and friends would visit Larson at the hospital and bring flowers in the hopes of keeping
his spirit up. As Larson got stronger and was able to go around the hospital he realized
that other patients did not have the same support, so he took some of his flowers and
distributed them to other fellow patients. And, just like that, Random Acts of Flowers
Since 2008 Random Acts of Flowers repurposes flowers that come from weddings, special
occasions, memorials, stores, churches, etc and, after volunteers create new
bouquets, distributes them to health care facilities in the area. Its aim is to bring
happiness to the patients and to the volunteers. Since 2013 Random Acts of Flowers
has continued to grow not only nationally, but the idea behind it has grown
internationally. Wouldn’t it be great to have this model of giving all over the world?
What random act of kindness will you perform today?
