Random Acts of Flowers blossoms overseas

By  | 

While their roots are here in Knoxville, Random Acts of Flowers has grown to new lengths, in London.

It's a simple concept; take recycled flowers and turn them into beautiful works of art for people in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living centers. It's such a great idea that it's gone international.

This week Random Acts of Flowers is hosting three women from England and teaching them all they need to know when it comes to recycling flowers for a good cause.

Julie Ritter, one of the women visiting said "We wanted to help the floral industry become greener and at the same time give back to the community."

They created a name for themselves, "Floral Angels" and after some research they came across Random Acts of Flowers.

"Frances found it online and we all said that's what we want to do." said Julie

They got in touch with the Random Acts of Flowers creator, Larson Jay and he invited them to Knoxville, Tennessee.

"They're here learning and hopefully we can help them create a charity similar to ours here in Knoxville." said Larson Jay, creator of Random Acts of Flowers.

It's an act of kindness that is being shared around the world.
