Blumz by JRDesgins is hitting the streets of Detroit on Wednesday, October 19th to hand out 1000+ flowers to Detroiters to help brighten their day as part of the National “Petal it Forward” campaign sponsored by SAF. Each person will receive two bouquets- one to keep and one to share.
The “Petal it Forward” program is in response to the release of new data from the Society of American Florists (SAF) showing the positive emotional benefits of flowers. Research shows that both giving and receiving flowers yields these positive results!

"Over 60 years ago, a Cleveland man, believing that the city’s orphans and shut-ins too often felt forgotten and neglected, conceived the idea of showing them that they were remembered by the distribution of small gifts. With the help of his friends and neighbors, he distributed these small remembrances on a Saturday in October. During the years that followed, other Clevelanders began to participate in the celebration ceremony, which came to be called “Sweetest Day.”
In time, the Sweetest Day idea of spreading cheer to the underprivileged was broadened to include everyone and became an occasion for remembering others with a kind act or a small remembrance. And soon, the idea spread to other cities all over the country. Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October as a day to make someone happy. It is an occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember not only the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed. It is a reminder that a thoughtful word or deed enriches life and gives it meaning".
Many of us see Sweetest Day as a holiday for couples like Valentine's Day, but its actually a very different holiday. It is a day to do something sweet for all the people in your life! So, celebrate Sweetest Day with all the sweets in your life this Saturday, October 15th!
