A Spokane, Washington, group called Rose Rush is bringing some light to Valentine's Day where there otherwise might be none.

The group of men has been passing out roses to military wives, single women, widows, and "anyone who doesn't have someone" to spend Valentine's Day with. This is the group's eighth year blessing the women in the Spokane area.

The group's GoFundMe page reveals that the group makes about 400 deliveries annually. Women can be nominated to receive flowers by submitting a message on the group's Facebook page.

The crowdfunding page has raised $1,130 at the time of this writing, which is over their initial goal of $1,100.

Speaking with KHQ-TV, the group's founder, Seth Stewart, said that Valentine's Day is always special to him for what the rose deliveries mean to some of the women.

"Last year we had one lady, she broke down sobbing, she hugged me for about half a minute," Stewart told the station. "Her husband had passed away in the last year, and she just thought that she was by herself."

The group starts delivering on Valentine's Day at 8 a.m. and doesn't stop until all the orders are complete.

In 2018, the group shared a photo of some of the men involved in sharing the goodwill and love.
