A film by HooplaHa.

Flowers are a gift from nature and have been used throughout the world to bring joy and lighten the heart. 'Random Acts of Flowers' (RAF) was born out of the misfortune of one man, Larsen Jay, who was overwhelmed with bouquets of flowers while in hospital. Having never received flowers before, he was inspired by how they made him feel and decided to re-gift them to others. This was the start of an initiative that delivers 'moments of kindness' to those in healthcare facilities by gifting re-purposed bouquets as well as an uplifting visit from one of the RAF volunteers.
