Set in Detroit, florist Ribar Floral has launched an effort whereby it will give free 'Good Job Bouquets' to locals nominated by the community for the kind things they've done.
In the wake of our recent story about The Generous Store comes word of yet another kindness-focused initiative. Set this time in Detroit, a florist has launched an effort whereby it will give free ‘Good Job Bouquets’ to locals nominated by the community for the kind things they’ve done. Plymouth-based Ribar Floral has been serving the Detroit community for more than a decade, and early this year it kicked off its Good Job Bouquet program to give something back to all those who have kept it going during tough economic times, according to a report on Detroit’s WDIV. Throughout this year, Ribar is accepting nominations of people who have done something to help others in the community, and each week it’s hand-delivering a bouquet to one of them. One early winner, for example, was Lauren Langkabe, a local restauranteur who reportedly served customers on the honor system last year when her credit card machine broke down. Ribar posts regular updates on its Facebook page. A few other US florists — including one in Kansas and one in Connecticut — have also embarked on similar initiatives this year. Florists and others around the globe: what about you?
