BENEFITING: Random Acts of Flowers
Random Acts of Flowers (RAF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity improving mental health through the power of giving flowers. RAF volunteers collect donated flowers from weddings, memorial services, special events, grocery stores and churches – to recycle and repurpose them into beautiful bouquets for delivery to patients in area hospitals, nursing homes and hospice care centers. As a recycling “green” charity run almost entirely by volunteers, Random Acts of Flowers is committed to nourishing the health of the environment, individuals, and the Tampa community.
Medical research has shown that a positive attitude quickens healing time and reduces the amount of pain, anxiety and fatigue associated with illness; Random Acts of Flowers’ goal is to serve a small part in the improvement of each patient’s positive mental health. Our target recipients are those who have been in a facility for an extended period of time, have not had visitors, don’t have a support structure, or are just needing a little cheer. Random Acts of Flowers has the honor of fulfilling our mission with every delivery. Please help us "plant the seeds" to spread kindness and compassion in the Tampa Bay area!
