Pay It Forward Like This Mount Ida AR Florist
One person helping another. That person helping someone else. So on, so forth. That's the idea behind "paying it forward."
The notion doesn't cross my mind often enough so I was happy to hear that a florist just a few hours from me was inspired to do something wonderful and is keeping the rhythm going.
Jonetta of Mount Ida Floral in Mount Ida Arkansas is one of those too-sweet-to-dislike people who lights up the room she's in. Her perpetual happiness is easy to love and any sadness in her is nearly unbearable for those that love to see her smile in the way that only she can. Her network coordinator at Flower Shop Network, Amy Hall, had that much and more to say about her as she gushed over "the sweet person I have ever spoken to."
Apparently a hardship found its way to Jonetta's flower shop. Unable to watch her struggle to find her smile, her flower wholesaler helped her by selling roses to them at very low rates. On top of that, the wholesaler gave two (2) cents of every rose sold to the Autism Foundation. The same flower wholesaler encouraged Jonetta to give back as well so she decided to give five (5) cents to her local library from every rose sold.
The caring "pay it forward" sentiment impressed Amy who quickly spread the news around Flower Shop Network. We all love hearing stories of charity, hope and giving. Jonetta's made us smile and think. I hope it does the same for you.
