Mission Statement

Inspired by the simple joy of receiving flowers, we are dedicated to bringing happiness and hope into the lives of people enduring or recovering from illness through regifting fresh flowers from local weddings and events to patients in the hospital. We transport the beauty and vitality of nature indoors by delivering flowers directly to patients’ rooms, ensuring each bouquet is personally gifted to an individual. Our aim is to brighten and comfort each patient’s stay while contributing to the sustainability of our community by repurposing florals.
