Billings residents asked to Petal it Forward

Posted: Updated:

Gainan's on Wednesday joined florists in every state to help brighten people's day.

The local company handed out 200 bouquets of flowers to random people in downtown Billings. Wake Up Montana's Becky Hillier was helping hand out the bouquets.

The recipients got to keep one of two bouquets. They were asked to give the other one away to someone else to brighten their day.

The event is part of a campaign called #petalitforward. Gainan's Vice President Kristen Gainan says about the event, "Most people are expecting that there will be a catch or something, but this is really, there's no catch to it. We just wanted people to feel good."

Gainan says the Society of American Florists started #petalitforward last year in New York and wanted to expand it to all 50 states this year.

The people who received the bouquets were encouraged to share their story on social media using the #petalitforward.
