A newlywed couple personally delivered dozens of floral arrangements from their wedding to lift the spirits of anyone going through hard times.
After Chance and Hannah Buckner married on Sept. 19, the thought of tossing out the flowers didn’t sit well with Hannah, so she put out a call on Facebook.
“I would like to deliver these to anyone needing a lift in their spirits,” she wrote. “If anyone knows of someone going through a tough time, an elderly or disabled person that is alone on their street, even if you’ve never talk to them but just see them occasionally. Please message me their address and I will deliver a flower arrangement to them with an encouraging note.”
The post received hundreds of comments and private messages from people nominating others — including patients battling COVID-19, cancer, recent losses, a teacher going through a rough patch, or someone they felt was lonely.
The couple spent six hours delivering flowers to about 20 locations near San Angelo, Texas.
“We delivered to numerous loved ones, friends and coworkers of people in the community all going through different things in their lives,” Hannah said. “We had a few people cry, got some hugs and many thank you’s. We had one lady hug us and cry and that one person made it all worth it.”
“I know I always enjoy getting flowers, so we just wanted to spread that same joy to others in need. Chance and I are believers and simply wanted to do what God tells us to do, which is to love and spread love to your neighbors.”
