Unexpected Blooms is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to positively affect the emotional wellbeing of our community by delivering repurposed and recycled flowers to create smiles and spread joy to individuals in healthcare facilities throughout KC.
What we do
Flowers are generously donated from weddings, memorial services, charity, corporate and private events, grocers, wholesale and retail florists. Our volunteers recut, refresh and reuse those flowers to create beautiful bouquets that we deliver to brighten someone's day. We work hand-in-hand with healthcare, hospice, senior resident and social service communities throughout our city to touch people's lives.
Why we do it
We believe that a simple act of kindness can truly make a profound difference in the lives of others.
Sharing kindness and spreading joy strengthens our community and according to behavioral research conducted at Rutger, Kansas State University, The State University of New Jersey and others, flowers improve both physical and emotional health.
