National Puppy Day was established to shine a spotlight on the necessity for spaying and neutering, the issues of shelter overcrowding, and the high rates of euthanasia.

On February 17th, we will observe National Acts of Kindness Day. Recognized internationally on different dates, the day was the brainchild of a New Zealand native who had the simple idea that he could make the world better place, one nice gesture at a time. The concept caught on immediately and raced around the world like wildfire. And although we have one special day set aside on the calendar, many people have embraced a lifestyle of making people smile. At Blossom Flower Shops, we are privileged to see and participate in acts of kindness all year long - and we look forward to helping you find creative ways to celebrate this wonderful day.
