At Teleflora, we love making people smile.
That’s why we’re thrilled about Make Someone Smile® Week 2015
During the week of July 19 – 25, thousands of our local Teleflora florists will deliver more than 25,000 Teleflora Be Happy® Bouquets to deserving people whose day will be brighter because of this surprise gift.
Teleflora’s Be Happy® Bouquet is a classic Teleflora keepsake bouquet that has come to embody the Make Someone Smile® Week program. Teleflora donates the iconic yellow mugs to thousands of participating florists nationwide. To make the bouquets complete florists donate their time and talents while many local wholesalers and growers contribute flowers.
Teleflora member florists and community volunteers will be out in their neighborhoods delivering Be Happy® Bouquets to those in need of smiles – such as hospital patients, senior citizens living in nursing homes and assisted living homes, and recipients of Meals-on-Wheels programs.
The amount of time given by our member florists who participate in the program is astounding. The donated flowers will help local Teleflora florists create the cheerful Be Happy® Bouquets, full of fresh white daisies and bright yellow roses and deliver them to residents they choose in their local communities.
Our cheerful bouquets go to hospital patients, children in foster care, nursing home residents, Meals on Wheels recipients, and many others. Now in its 15th year, Teleflora’s Make Someone Smile Week has grown to become one of the floral industry’s leading charitable projects, involving growers, wholesalers, and family-owned flower shops across the country.
