You may have seen on my Instagram that I received a surprise bouquet of flowers today. I had absolutely no idea who they were from. Then, checking my email, I found a lovely note from The Flower Council of Holland explaining "The Flower Effect" - a way to spread happiness through a random act of kindness (and we all know how I adore that). This bunch of flowers has definitely brightened my day up especially as sunflowers are my favourite!
Sticking with the theme, I requested that two bunches of flowers be passed on to two great people [1 | 2] who I know deserve them this week. Just my little way of continuing to spread happiness. Hopefully they've received them by now or I've just ruined a great surprise...
To see more about The Flower Effect, here is a short film produced by Basha de Bruijn for the Flower Council of Holland. Only the two main characters are actors - all the reactions from passers-by are genuine. The idea behind it is that seeing someone carry a bunch of flowers cheers us all up and leaves us pondering who the flowers are for and why they deserve to receive them.
