"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. They have been talking about the flowers ALL WEEK and every single person I have visited has them proudly displayed in their apartment or on the ledge in front of their door. They are so pleasantly surprised to tell me that 'Some person I don't know just brought me flowers!' In addition to the flowers, I think the opportunity to talk to a new person was so valuable for them. Most of our residents live alone and while many have family nearby or caregivers, they often don't have much impromptu socialization opportunities. I can assure you that long after the flowers have met their end, the joy they brought our residents will be brightly blooming. " - Amy, Chicago
Across the country, Random Acts of Flowers deliveries hope, encouragement, and personal moments of kindness to vulnerable members of the communities we serve. People young and old; fighting injury, illness, or the aging process; scared and lonely and in need of a little brightness and color in their life.
Our mission is simple, but powerful and medical studies confirm the positive impact that deliveries from Random Acts of Flowers have on the emotional wellness of medical patients.
- Almost 95% of respondents self-reported that the unexpected delivery from Random Acts of Flowers improved their overall emotional wellness, with 73.5% reporting “extreme improvement.”
- 81.1% of respondents reported they had not received other gifts of flowers outside of the Random Acts of Flowers delivery.
- 11.3% of the sample said our volunteers were the only visitors they had during their hospital stay.
