“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” Margaret Mead
The unsung heroes of the Evansville community are doing their part, showing up every day to teach, encourage, inspire, mentor, comfort, and strengthen those on their watch. These are the world changers who rarely make the news, the ones who may never be named but are making a difference one person at a time. In May, Zeidler’s Flowers celebrates and honors both teachers and nurses, two very different professions with one very big thing in common – their hearts for people.
National Teachers Week is May 7-13, 2017 :
“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” –Henry Brooks Adams
A great teacher does so much more than follow a curriculum and hand out exams. Educators see the great untapped potential in each and every student – and do whatever they can to show those kids and young adults a path to their success. When people are asked to name positive influences in their lives, many will point to a teacher. National Teachers Week is a great opportunity to give recognition to your teachers, past or present. Let them know that what they do every day makes an impact. Go Ahead, Be Social: On May 9, join millions across the country in thanking teachers. Post your photos and stories on any social media platform, with the hashtag #ThankATeacher.
National Nurses Week is May 6- May 12, 2017 :
“Our job as nurses is to cushion the sorrow and celebrate the joy ‘while we are just doing our jobs'”. Christine Belle, RN, BSN.
National Nurses Week begins its weeklong festivities on May 6, also known as Nurses Day. The week culminates on May 12 annually, as it is Florence Nightingale’s birthday. There are over 3.1 million nurses in the United Stated, but this commemoration is your chance to send a very special nurse some personal gratitude. From the joy of a baby’s arrival to the challenges of an illness, nurses are by our side. No one else is better qualified to bring such competence, experience, mental strength, and sheer compassion into every shift – nurses are truly the cornerstone of any medical facility.
Whether to appreciate a nurse or a teacher, Zeidler’s Flowers has beautiful floral designs that express vivid gratitude. Let them know they make a true difference every day – send flowers!
