Victoria woman marks World Kindness Day by handing out flowers
Royal Roads alumna (MAPC 2011) Angela Frattaroli was featured in the Victoria Times Colonist for her acts of kindness in downtown Victoria Thursday.
To celebrate World Kindness Day, Frattaroli gave away 2,000 flowers to passersby – all on her own dime, and with no greater agenda than to spread cheer.
Here is an excerpt:
“Frattaroli, with the help of her mother and a friend, spent the day downtown giving 2,000 flowers to strangers to brighten their days.
She wasn’t asking for anything back. She’s not tied to any organization or campaign, and paid for the flowers out of her own pocket.
“I’m not asking anything of anyone; maybe just pay forward any kindness in a small way,” said the 32-year-old government communications worker. “It’s purely giving. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do, I’ll give you flowers.”
