If you have a loved one in a Philadelphia or suburban rehab, nursing home, hospital, or senior living community or if you work in a facility that might like “The Happy Flower Day” project to bring bouquets of free fresh flowers to the residents, clients or patients, please contact us.
Patricia Gallagher is bringing lots of joy to those who need it most. What is the “Happy Flower Day” Project?
Mission: We gather beautiful day-old and surplus flowers from florists, grocery stores, floral specialty departments of large stores, and floral wholesalers to take to people in need of a smile. We “re-purpose” day-old bouquets and take them to groups of people who are sad, hurting, upset, sick, out-of-sorts, lonely, living without a purpose, ashamed or embarrassed by something, feeling left out, depressed, struggling with issues, grieving, worried, anxious, trying to beat an addiction, homeless and others in need of a surprise gift of flowers. And to healthcare workers, friends and family of people who are sick……..well, practically everyone! People who I meet along my route…..anyone that I think would like a random act of flowers!
All of the flowers are in perfect condition!
WHYY Public Radio Behavioral Health reporter Maiken Scott did an audio story complete with 12 pictures which can be seen on our website. www.happyflowerday.com (August, 2013)
The National Enquirer did a feature story on the last page of the magazine for their “Acts of Kindness” page. October 28, 2013 issue.
I look forward to hearing from you so that we can bring bouquets of joy to people in hospitals, hospices, senior communities, and shelters, etc. Please visit our website for lots of pictures, audio interview and details about the project.
