Our Passion, Our Story

Sharon met this amazing lady while shopping for fresh flowers on Crusade of Hope in Minneapolis, MN.

Hi, my name is Sharon.  In 2014, I 'randomly' gave a woman at a local library a red fresh flower and matching red 'butterfly' sticker to place on the back of her cell phone.  She did not seem to be very excited about it, so I thought.......
When I returned to the library the following day, I saw the same woman, she revealed prior to me giving her the fresh flower and butterfly sticker for her phone, she was on her way to commit suicide!!!  Instead, she decided not to take her life.  She went home and told her husband she was planning to kill herself and that she believed God was trying to tell her something from our encounter.  No one had ever given her a random act of kindness.

This encounter saved the woman's life, and forever changed mine!  It taught me the necessity for spontaneous giving to strangers!   When I'm not on a mission with our street team sharing inspirational gifts of kindness, I'm handcrafting candles and medicinal soaps that we retail and give as acts of kindness.
