Random Acts of Flowers is a strong partner with the floral industry.
Since its founding, RAF has worked closely with floral professionals to utilize flowers in a productive and meaningful way.
We do not compete for a florist’s customer base
RAF serves vulnerable individuals who wouldn’t normally receive flowers or visitors.
We only use what is already sold or is unsalable
RAF focuses on “upcycling” used, donated flowers otherwise destined for the garbage.
We celebrate flowers and florists as an important part of our society
With each delivery, RAF validates the importance of giving flowers and reinforces how their healing properties can impact people’s lives for the better.
We never substitute for a floral professional
We never take individual requests in lieu of a customer working with a local florist.
We are a key referral source for florists
RAF gladly refers and promotes our partner florists to donors, supporters, and volunteers.
“For years, I would walk out of an event with a heavy heart knowing that thousands of dollars of flowers would be tossed in the garbage. Now that Random Acts of Flowers is here we smile as we leave knowing that all of our hard work of beautiful fresh flowers will continue to brighten and bless someone else’s day.” – Lisa Foster, Lisa Foster Floral Design
“We have a cart full of flowers every day that we would otherwise throw in the compost. It’s better to get smiles from patients instead. I love seeing pictures of a recipient when they get flowers! It’s good to know we’re making a difference.” – Steve W., Retail Floral Coordinator
