Random Acts of Flowers is a strong partner with the floral industry. Since its founding, RAF has worked closely with floral professionals to utilize waste in a productive and meaningful way. Keys to our successful floral relationships:
RAF isn’t competing for a florist’s customer base.
Patients served by the charity include people who wouldn’t normally receive flowers, are forgotten about, haven’t had a visitor or are without a support network.
“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
RAF is using what’s already sold (or unsellable) in the floral marketplace.
Our charity focuses on gathering used, donated flowers that are destined for the garbage to recycle them for another purpose.
“I enjoy knowing that Random Acts of Flowers is repurposing my customer’s flowers into bouquets for people who wouldn’t ordinarily receive a gift of flowers. As one of the original floral partners I have enjoyed watching RAF’s growth in our community. This is a wonderful, cheerful charity of which I am proud to participate in.” – Scott Morrell /Flowers
RAF celebrates flowers & florists as an important part of our society.
With each delivery, Random Acts of Flowers is validating that flowers have a healing property and can purposefully impact people.
“We are so happy to have Random Acts of Flowers in our community. Their mission helps to cut down on our waste and allows more people to benefit from the joy of flowers.” – Mary Beth Reagan / The Flower Pot
RAF never serves as a substitute for a florist.
Our charity focused exclusively on recycling and repurposing donated flowers and all floral delivery recipients are chosen by the nurses/caregivers. RAF never individualizes its charitable mission and never replaces a local florist.
RAF is a key referral source to area florists.
Donors, supporters & volunteers continuously ask RAF for advice on working with floral professionals. We are happy to refer and promote partner florists to build a stronger industry.
Random Acts of Flowers is a member of the Society of American Florists (SAF). SAF is the only national trade association that represents all segments of the U.S. floral industry. The 15,000 members are the industry’s top retailers, growers, wholesalers, importers, manufacturers, suppliers, educators, students and allied organizations. SAF is the face and voice of a strong, unified floral industry.
