Mission Statement

Random Acts of Flowers improves the emotional health and well-being of individuals in health care facilities by delivering recycled flowers, encouragement and personal moments of kindness.

Description

In July 2007, Random Acts of Flowers’ founder, Larsen Jay, was in a near-fatal accident. He credits the outpouring of support he received in the form of daily visitors and dozens of floral arrangements while in the hospital as a key to providing the emotional lift and encouragement that helped him persevere through the multiple surgeries and challenging recovery process he faced.

When Larsen was capable of leaving his room, he noticed how many of his fellow patients did not have visitors or flowers - the very thing that helped him so much in those early and difficult days. The first "random act of flowers" delivery was made moments later as Larsen and his wife, Adrian, repurposed his flowers and delivered them. The memories of how a simple gesture touched his fellow patients compelled Larsen to form Random Acts of Flowers in 2008.

Since then, Random Acts of Flowers has grown into a united family led by the team at its national headquarters in Knoxville, Tennessee. But it’s also a collection of independent branches in cities around the country that are committed to shared visions and values.
