Children at UVa Hospital have something to smile about today and it comes in yellow, red, and purple. Teleflora is donating thousands of bouquets to medical patients just to see a grin. It's called Make Someone Smile Week.

Local Florists delivered flowers to children and hospital workers who needed something to perk them up.

Greg and Melonie Graul have spent several days at the hospital with their 10-week-old son who just underwent heart surgery.

"They take care of everybody here. The doctors are great, nurses are great, everyone. They are doing a great job with our child too," the couple said.

About 300 cities in the US and Canada are involved and organizers hope 30,000 smiles will be delivered this week.
