What is worse than watching Aunt Tillie battle with Cousin Marlene over the flower arrangements at your wedding? Well, you can avoid that whole fracas and enhance the lives of hospital and hospice patients through a wonderful organization called FlowerPower. (WWW.flowerpowerfoundation.org). Nancy Lawlor’s company “repurposes” flowers from all kinds of events, re-arranging them into small bouquets that are delivered to patients in nursing homes, hospitals and hospices in New York and Los Angeles. Her goal is to build a nation wide network of joy.

Your celebration flowers can make the difference in someone’s day, after they have made the difference in yours. You can contact her foundation at 212 308 4930, or ask your florist if they would be willing to deliver your flowers to a local nursing home or hospice. What a great way to share your special day!
