I have felt completely out of my wheelhouse with all that is going on in our world. I want to do more than share another supportive post that would disappear in a moment’s time. It feels weak because it is weak. It is simply not enough. If I am going to help fight for justice, the way that I have taught my own children to fight for other children, the way I educate myself and my children, then I must do more. I have to research more, read more, dig deeper, and make real sacrifices.
The entire month of June I am going to donate 10% of all Camelback Flowershop profits to the following charities:
NAACP Legal Defense and Education
Black Lives Matter
Audre Lorde Project
Southern Poverty Law Center
These are 5 of 14 charities that I have taken the time to read about as well as call in and talk to volunteers working there. Please share with our community information about charities you are supporting. This is not a moment, it’s a movement.

Thank you for your posts, research and honesty, both regarding the current issues with racism and George Floyd , as well as the recent accusations with the Fortoul brothers, specifically Isaac. You post about the latter was especially helpful to me, as my experiences/conversations, while brief and via dm, have always been with Gabriel, and as an art educator and fan of their work, I’m just devastated by the news. And as a survivor of sexual assault , I’m angered and heart broken. I support you in your posting choices and look forward to seeing your beautiful creations again soon.
