Bennett’s Flowers and Gifts announced today that it will join thousands of Teleflora local member florists across the country for Make Someone Smile® Week, the floral industry’s most popular, successful and heartwarming initiative of the year. The program runs from July 17 through July 23 and is a joint venture led by local Teleflora member florists who volunteer their time to create and deliver the widely popular Be Happy® Bouquets to those most in need of a smile - such as hospital patients, senior citizens living in nursing homes and assisted living homes, and recipients of meals through Meals-on-Wheels programs. Teleflora donates the keepsake Be Happy® Mugs to participating florists.

The joyful floral arrangements created in the Be Happy® Mugs feature bright yellow and/or white daisies, and some mugs will have a variety of sweet treats. Bennett’s Flowers and Gifts will secure the flowers and treats. Bennett’s Flowers and Gifts will distribute their Be Happy® Bouquets and treats, to local organizations including St Bernards’ Village, Rosehaven Villa, St. Elizabeth’s, Morningside, and Fire Stations 1-7. Over 300 Be Happy® Mugs will be distributed.

Developed by Teleflora in 2000, Make Someone Smile® Week has grown to become one of the floral industry’s most successful cause-related initiatives in North America, delivering happiness in local communities around the country. In 2015, the program spanned over 100 cities and 300 facilities throughout the United States and Canada, and involved over 1,000 florists. Teleflora’s member florists delivered more than 20,000 floral arrangements to those most in need of a smile.
