CHARLOTTE, Michigan – Over the past three weeks, Charlotte Plaza Floral has donated 12 flower arrangements through random acts of kindness from the community.
Charlotte Plaza Floral owner Tammy Bush said it all started about three weeks ago when a regular customer picked up a bouquet of flowers for himself and then chose two arrangements for others.
“He says you choose. I want you to pick people you think deserve and give them these shops. I’m like ‘Oh my god. It’s such a great idea, ”said Bush.
To decide who would receive the flower arrangement, Bush posted it on Facebook so people could name others, then put the names in a hat and chose them.
Bush began to hear from more and more people who wanted to donate.
Harmony Cullimore named her grandmother, who suffers from dementia, and, out of nearly 200 people, she won.
“And I was so happy, and couldn’t wait to tell my grandma. And when I told her, she just started laughing out loud and said, ‘I can’t believe it. I never win anything, ”Cullimore said. “So it was great to tell her, and she was so happy all night.
The bouquet Cullimore’s grandmother won was donated by Michelle Weisenberg of Soul Flower Photography. She said she donated because she wanted to bring some sunshine to others.
When Weisenberg saw the photo of Cullimore’s grandmother, she said, it was a beautiful moment.
“It was kind of a moment, I believe, meant to be,” Weisenberg said. “Harmony said her grandmother suffered from dementia and she unfortunately has it. And my grandmother unfortunately passed away from dementia, so for me it really touched my heart.”
Charlotte Plaza Floral has been open for almost 13 years and this is the first time the store has seen something like this. Bush said she hopes this continues.
“I always say if you could see someone’s face when they get flowers, you would send flowers to your loved ones every day,” said Bush.
