High School Senior Makes Sure That No Girl In His High School Got Left Behind On Valentine’s Day
Hayden Godfrey did the impossible this past Valentine’s Day, he went where no other high school 17-year-old has ever gone before.
Ever since middle school, he had been sending anonymous Valentine flowers to his female friends. The more he gave, the more he noticed how many girls were being left out.
He did not want any of the 834 girls at his high school to be left out. Godfrey worked for 18 months, as a cook at McDonald’s, a dishwasher at a Mexican restaurant and a bagger at a grocery store – to save $450 to pay an online flower wholesaler.
He bought 900 carnations, enough for every girl to feel special in his Utah high school.
“It was was totally worth it. I don’t think anything can compare to seeing every girl in your life holding a flower as they walk through the halls,” he posted Thursday.
His girlfriend said she was really proud of what he did for not just her, but for everyone.
“I, myself, spent a lot of Valentine’s days not receiving anything,” she said. “I know how it feels.” – 18-year-old Lilyan Sharp
