Floral acts of kindness overwhelmed by Market support
Floral Acts of Kindness Inc. (FAOK) is Australia’s first and only flower-rescue charity.
The team visited the Market last Saturday and were overwhelmed by the support they received from traders.
FAOK wish to send a message of thanks regarding the donation of flowers received.
Particular thanks go to; Maliku Flowers, Halit Flowers, Mr Fresh Flowers, Five Ways, Tairi Flowers, Carnovale Growers, Ali Flowers, Santospirito, Piollivico Flowers, Zekirija Flowers, Tari Flowers and APACK.
The flowers donated from the Melbourne Market were first taken to Geelong where FAOK ran a workshop and volunteers made approximately 115 flower jar posies!
Those posies then went to an Aged Care Facility where every resident received a flower jar. The flowers brought so much happiness to the residents, and it started conversations about flowers they once had in a garden or the flowers they had at their weddings.
Some posies also went to the Melbourne City Mission Palliative Care Unit, providing a small amount of joy to suffering and isolated patients.
Floral acts of kindness will be back in the Flower Market on Saturday 21 December.
Check out the photos below to see some of the joy the donated flowers brought.
