This High School Senior Surprised Every Girl At His School With Flowers

You can file this story under extreme acts of kindness.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Hayden Godfrey, the high school senior from Utah, handed out flowers to all 834 girls at his high school on Thursday.

The massive gift was a result of years of planning. The 17-year-old originally came up with the idea in middle school after noticing the girls who didn’t receive anything on the love-centric day, his mother told ABC News.

This isn’t the first time that Godfrey has sent mass flowers on Valentine’s Day, however. Godfrey has anonymously sent flowers to dozens of his friends every Valentine’s Day, but decided this year to kick it up a notch in order to make “as many people as possible” happy.

To pay for all of the flowers, he worked at McDonald’s, a Mexican restaurant and a grocery store. Godfrey had to save for a year and a half to purchase the 900 carnations from a wholesaler. ABC News reported that it cost Godfrey a total of $450.

Lilyan Sharp, Godfrey’s girlfriend, called his gift “very special” and said every girl had a “giant smile on their face.”

“I don’t think anything can compare to seeing every girl in your life holding a flower as they walk through the halls,” Godfrey wrote on Facebook.

This is the high school equivalent of handing out a paper valentine to everyone in your classes when you were younger. Regardless, let’s all come together to have a collective, “aw,” shall we?
