The Random Acts of Flowers workshop has been awash in springtime flowers for the last few months, and we have used them to make more than 4,600 deliveries of hope and encouragement in our community since you last heard from us.
We have some exciting opportunities available if you’d like to participate in our mission this summer and we have some great news to report about how we’ve impacted lives. We hope you’ll read on to find out everything we’ve been up to this spring!
At the end of April, renowned floral designer Jody McLeod joined us at RAF Indianapolis for a workshop and our annual Spring Fundraising Luncheon.
Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate and support delivering hope!

NEWS FROM THE WORKSHOP
RANDOM ACTS OF PUPPIES – Some of our volunteers are fuzzier than others! Service dog in training and expert floral designer, Mr. BB, spent some time with us in the workshop this spring!
ARE YOU GREEN WITH INDY? – Ever wonder what happens to the flowers we don’t use? Those moldy, slimy, sad flowers that we just couldn’t save are composted by local composting service, Green With Indy. And guess what? They offer a residential composting service too!
THE NEXT GENERATION OF GIVERS – Young philanthropists from the Stonybrook Middle School Student Council in MSD Warren Township hosted a vase drive and collected hundreds of vases for our delivering hope.
MAKE OUR WISHES COME TRUE – OUCH! Our volunteers (and their poor fingers) are desperately in need of thorn stripping tools to rid our beautiful roses of those pesky and painful thorns. Can you help us by purchasing some (and/or any of the other items) from our Amazon Wish List?
RACING TO GIVE – It’s May in Indy which can only mean one thing….Indy 500 Victory Banquet Flowers! We want to give a big thank you to Indy Car, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Detail+Design for these gorgeous yellow arrangements from the event!
