What’s Happening Around the Blogosphere?
Make Someone Smile Week
Did you know that this week (July 17-23) is Make Someone Smile Week?
Make Someone Smile Week is an amazing program from Teleflors.com that takes place across the country. Many groups come together to donate their goods and time to make flower arrangements to deliver to those who may need a smile (hospital patients, elderly, children in foster care).
Together with thousands of local Teleflora florists, they’ll deliver more than 40,000 Teleflora Be Happy® Bouquets to deserving people whose day will be brighter because of this surprise gift. You can help, too! Thanks to ashallann from Squeezing it All Together for letting us know about Make Someone Smile Week!
