For many people, Valentine’s Day is a day of chocolates, lavish dinners, dazzling romance, and deep affection. But for singles, it can often be a day of deep loneliness and hyper-awareness about one’s solo status.

With that deep disparity in mind, 29-year-old Seth Stewart has been spending the last eight years on a mission to make sure that local widows, single women, and the wives or girlfriends of deployed service members in Spokane, Washington, are not forgotten.

Stewart and his brothers wake up every morning on Valentine’s Day before delivering red roses to between 400 and 500 women, and this year they hope to deliver no less than 700 roses to women across the region.

The service—dubbed Rose Rush Deliveries—has been a major success. Stewart told KHQ:

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

Stewart maintains a list of the women and mothers in his region who receive the deliveries every year, and in the lead-up to Valentine’s Day, he asks followers of his Facebook page to nominate single women who might want a small pick-me-up in the form of a free rose.
