Larsen Jay is a man who thoroughly believes that flowers not only bring joy to people’s lives, but that they also have the power to heal.
In 2007, Jay was confined to a hospital bed after falling from a ladder. The accident meant he had to endure a long and painful recovery, but fortunately for him, he received plenty of visitors bearing gifts of cards and flowers. Once he got better and was able to move around the hospital, Jay noticed that there were plenty of rooms without any blooms. That’s when he decided to do his best to brighten people’s lives by passing his bouquets on to others. Thus Random Acts of Flowers was born.
Now a full-fledged non-profit organization based in Knoxville, Tennessee, it brings a dash of color and a smile to people’s lives!
What an inspiring and beautiful story. It put a huge smile on my face, and now I want to share the joy by giving someone a bouquet of flowers!
