Last week many florists around the country participated in the Petal it Forward campaign, gifting flowers as random acts of kindness. SAF’s goodwill initiative is where participants hand two flowers or bouquets to an unsuspecting stranger, urging them to keep one and share the other with someone else.
Trig’s ‘Petal It Forward Day’ spreads joy throughout Tomahawk
OCTOBER 20, 2023
TOMAHAWK – People around Tomahawk had their day unexpectedly brightened this week, thanks to a local store’s campaign.
On Thursday, Oct. 19, as part of its “Petal It Forward Day,” Trig’s employees visited several locations in Tomahawk and handed out bunches of flowers to unsuspecting people. While the recipients of the bouquets kept one, they gave the other to someone else in an effort to “petal it forward” and spread joy throughout the community.
Trig’s noted that the Petal It Forward event is an employee favorite.
“Everyone (looked) so happy to receive their bouquets, and we know the second bouquet they gave away was just as appreciated,” Trig’s said. “We hope everyone was surprised today!”
