Meghan Markle never misses an opportunity to give back.

Following her baby shower in New York City, which was thrown by her close friends, Meghan, 37, donated her entire floral display - which she and her friends arranged - to charity.

Jennifer Grove, the CEO of Repeat Roses, an organization which recycles florals from events and uses them to cheer up people in hospitals and care centers, revealed they were gifted to pediatric cancer patients at Ronald McDonald House Charities of New York.

The other flowers went to cancer patients at Hope Lodge and men and women receiving care at Unique People Services.

In the organization's photos, it is clear the flowers were much appreciated as the patients can be seen smiling with the stunning bouquets.

"Repeat Roses was so honored to help petal-it-forward with a baby shower experience for the Duchess of Sussex and her thoughtful friends by creating a ripple effect of kindness across the community," Grove tells PEOPLE.

Lewis Miller identified himself as the instructor who guided the baby shower guests to arranging their beautiful bouquets on Instagram, complimenting the Duchess of Sussex along the way.

"Oh what fun it was to teach an 'amazing' flower class yesterday for Meghan Markle (So sweet! So engaged! A class act!) and her closest pals at the Mark Hotel!" he captioned a collage.

Miller gave shout outs to others involved in the event, hinting that the party goers were treated to a dessert buffet and played "the chicest baby shower games ever invented," before praising the Repeat Roses for their work.

"It's all fun and games but ultimately giving back is the most satisfying!" he said.
