“The man who can smile when things go wrong has thought of someone else he can blame it on.” ~ Robert Bloch
Did you know that today begins National Make Someone Smile WEEK (July 20-16? That’s right. And all across the country thousands of florists are delivering flowers to people in hospitals, nursing homes, and foster care centers to people who might not otherwise get any flowers.
Started in 2000 by Teleflora, it has become “the floral industry’s most successful charitable program. Last year’s program spanned 144 cities throughout the United States and Canada, more than 2,000 florists donated their time. Teleflora’s program delivered more than 35,000 bouquets to those most in need of a smile.”
Eden Florist will be participating in Make Someone Smile Week by dropping off flowers to my local library, favorite grocery store clerk and more.
Check out the article “How do you Make Someone Smile? Send Flowers, of course!” It’s my list of 21 people and places to send a smile and get on in return. and be sure to visit: EdenFlorist.com to send flowers to someone who needs a lift.
And when you give a smile, it is almost impossible not to get one in return! And wouldn’t it be nice to be “blamed” for doing something good (for a change)? *SMILE
So keep smiling! And be sure to send someone flowers to make them smile too! It could be a total stranger or someone you love. Its up to you.
Feel free to leave your LIST of people you would like to make smile in the comments section below. If we get enough response, I may even have a contest and give free flowers to the writer AND the person she/he wishes to send flowers. How about that to make someone smile?
Happy Make Someone Smile Week!
