Usually, Mother’s Day is one of the hottest days of the year for flower vendors.
However, one young man was not doing the sales he expected until he met a kind stranger who would turn his day around.
Why an Unlucky Flower Seller’s Mother’s Day Went Viral on Instagram
Instagram influencer @akramadinas, who boasts more than 150k followers, recently posted a video that went viral. In the video, he asks a street vendor named Manuel, who had been selling flowers, if he had made many sales that day.

The vendor replied that he hadn’t had the most successful of days. This was surprising, since the video was taken around Mother’s Day, when flower sales tend to be at their highest. Feeling for the vendor, the Instagram star offered to purchase the rest of the inventory. The original price was over $800, but the instagram star, who goes by AK, gave the man $1000.
