365 Days of Happy - Day 320

I had this bookmarked on my computer for a while now, and love the story, probably because it's a Day of Happy.

'You Deserve A Flower' Project
By Sarah Medina

'For whatever you are dealing with, you deserve this.'

Nathan Ira has distributed more than a hundred flowers with this message to complete strangers on the streets of Bozeman, Montana.

A 23-year-old cook and fine arts student at Montana State University, Ira began the 'You Deserve A Flower' campaign to help brighten the lives of complete strangers, reports the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.

'Sometimes you can tell by the look on their faces or the way they walk,' he told the Great Falls Tribune. 'You can just tell they need a flower.'

'It doesn't matter who you are or where you've been, you're dealing with something difficult,' Ira told the Billings Gazette. 'It's one of the undeniable truths: Everyone's dealing with something.'

His dream is to watch the project take on a national initiative - a network where volunteers, donors, and random do-gooders can buy flowers for strangers anywhere in the country. Ira hopes that someday a stranger will hand him a flower.

'That would be really incredible if it came full circle,' he said.
