BIRMINGHAM — A random act of kindness is something we all like to see and on Wednesday, Oct. 21, Norton’s Florist set a great example.
The florist gave away flowers outside UAB Hospital. The “Petal it Forward” initiative is meant to put smiles on faces in Birmingham.
Owner Gus Pappas asked people walking by to take two bouquets, one for themselves and one for someone else. Pappas and his son, Cameron, do this every year in downtown Birmingham, but they felt like UAB Hospital was the best place to give back this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The pair asked everyone nearby to social distance and wear masks.
