The book prompts the reader with a question- "What is a way you can spread happiness and joy in your town?"
Lanie Plants a Sunflower
The DuPage Sunflower Project began when Delanie, a 5th grader, was thinking about how she could plant bright yellow Sunflowers to spread happiness and help the environment.
She came up with a wonderful idea to plant a few sunflower seeds each day while on her walk to school, and by the end of the school year, there would be rows of big beautiful yellow sunflowers. The thought of this made her so happy, she wanted to share her happiness with everyone! With the help of her Mom and Dad, we’ve created The DuPage Sunflower Project which all stemmed from Delanie’s idea.
Help us inspire happiness across the community, spread joy and have a positive and beneficial impact on the environment by planting sunflowers everywhere!
"Delanie is encouraging businesses to grow sunflowers, which in-turn produce sunflower seeds, which in-turn can be planted to grow more sunflowers, now that is paying it forward"
