Get a group together to bundle up flowers, with some other accent greenery.  Target anywhere that you can find women, i.e. shopping areas, Nursing Homes,  and people leaving libraries and exercise clubs.

Buy buckets of flowers, baby’s breath and some fern.  Get some ribbon, clear and green paper to wrap the flowers in, and some preprinted cards and rubber bands.

Create Phrase: Use a phrase above, or create your own.

Copy It: onto colored paper or cardstock.

Cut It: Assign a perfectionist to use a paper cutter and cut up into smaller cards.

Punch It: Make a hole with a hole punch in each card.

Bundle It: Buy buckets of flowers, baby’s breath and some fern.  Wrap a flower with some greenery, surround with green and clear plastic sheets of floral paper to wrap the flowers in, and secure with a rubber band.

Thread It: Thread a ribbon or two through the hole to attach the note to the flowers. Use one or two colorful strands, maybe 2 strands of 12” of either of red, pink, purple or white curling ribbon.

Bucket It: Place bottom ends of flowers into water in buckets, tub, coolers or bins to transport your flowers to your hand-out site.

LOCATIONS FOR OUTREACH

Intentional Acts of Kindness:  Find women to give flowers to on street corners, nursing homes, shopping areas and door to door give-aways.

Empower the people in church to extend love beyond the walls of the church:  Have the flowers with cards attached and ready on Sunday morning, and ask people to take them as they leave to give away.  They might have someone in mind, or they might know of someone who lives alone in their neighborhood who could use a lift.  Or they could hand them out to strangers that they come across.

WHAT TO SAY

“We just wanted to bless your day!”  “We just wanted you to know you are loved!”
