Improving the emotional health and well-being of individual in healthcare facilities by delivering recycled flowers, encouragement and personal moments of kindness. 
I am sure I am not the first person to be overwhelmed with gratitude at what a difference your visit and gifts made to our residents. I think the opportunity to talk to a new person was so valuable for them.

I can assure you that long after the flowers have met their end, the joy they brought our residents will be brightly blooming.

Bouquets Make a Difference

Recipients of arrangements are touched and surprised. “The calls we get from these recipients, they just make you weep because you know what that arrangement looked like.
