Orange County mother and son flower delivery business asks for help to grow

CHAPEL HILL, NC (WTVD) — A mother-son duo from Orange County are looking for help to expand their flower delivery business.

Raimee Sorensen and her mother Rebecca created Stunning flower farm to combine Raimee’s love for gardening and people.

Raimee is a young man with autism. He grows, cultivates and delivers the organic flowers with the Blawesome Flower Farm social farm team.

Blawesome hopes to give the community “the opportunity to witness the beautiful gifts that people with disabilities have to offer”.

Giving the beautiful flowers and being able to interact with people from a distance has helped Raimee carry on during the pandemic.

“Just being able to bring flowers out into the world and greet people from a safe distance has been helpful in alleviating some of that anxiety about everything being okay; it’s going to be okay,” Rebecca said.

With 130 deliveries a week, they had to borrow a van from a local farmer. But to grow, they will need their own van. Unfortunately, they don’t have the $30,000 it will cost to buy one.

“We’re still selling and it’s amazing, and we’re so grateful and grateful for all the support the community has given us, but we’ve found ourselves in a position where we really need to have our own delivery vehicle. “, said Rebecca.

With the help of the community, they hope to be able to continue to provide beauty and joy.

Blawesome has a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $30,000. This means that they must reach their goal before August 15 in order to get the money they have collected. So if you want to contribute, Click here.
