MENOMONE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A nationwide movement to spread a little kindness has made its way to western Wisconsin.

Today, florists across the country handed out free bouquets as a pay it forward initiative.
One to keep for yourself and one to give to a stranger.

Lakeview floral in Menomonie joined in on the random acts of kindness with 250 bouquets to give away.    

“You can totally tell when someone receives something by the way their face lights up and they smile and it just is a visual reminder of someone’s thinking of me, some cares about me, I matter, but it’s a tangible way to show someone those things that are intangible.”
