The Smile Maker: Brooke MacLean and RAF Chicago
“Random Acts of Flowers starts with something so simple, yet so beautiful,” says MacLean, a former engineering consultant.
Since its January 2015 debut, RAF’s Chicago branch—located just two miles southwest of Northwestern’s Evanston campus— has delivered more than 55,000 bouquets to approximately 150 senior facilities, rehab centers, and hospitals across Chicagoland.
“Sometimes I’m the coach, and sometimes I’m the cheerleader,” MacLean says. “But I’m never afraid to roll up my sleeves and do whatever it takes.”
