You may not know this about me, but I haven’t always been a flower farmer and designer. I spent 17 years working in (mostly) public schools and also founded and have been running a nonprofit to help families impacted by a neurobehavioral disorder (FAFASD) for the past 10 years.
I’ve always volunteered, organized, and donated to causes I believe in. My work has always been more than “just” about making money.
One of the core values of my flower farming business has been giving back whenever possible. I’m really proud of the fact that as my business has grown and for the first time in my life I’ve had some income to spare, I’ve been able to increase donations to organizations that are important to me.
Recently, I’ve been thinking about how to do this in a way that connects with my local community. I can, and will, keep giving money, but I’d also like to give what I DO: meaning give flowers, my design labor, and time, and then multiply those skills and that organization through your purchases.
So – my desire to help PLUS my ability to DO = my new fundraising program!
The idea is this: I sell my flowers to our community and I use the funds we raise together to support various causes. Easy, right?
The flowers will be on sale for a specific amount of money, a specific amount of time; delivered on one specific day. This makes it efficient and above all, economical for me, so most of what we raise is going to the community organizations I support.
You can buy the flowers for yourself, for a friend, or even have them sent to a local nursing home! My contribution is the organization, labor, design, and delivery. You are providing financial support AND getting (or giving) a pretty and fun floral arrangement in the process. And together we are raising awareness about important local causes.
Funds raised will be focused on local non-profit organizations who support families and children in need. I will run the fundraisers from April – September. To find the CURRENT fundraiser, please visit the “SHOP” link or follow me on Instagram.
If you run a local organization and would like to be part of this fundraising effort, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Since April, 2022, we’ve raised money for:
