FLORAL HOUSE FLORAILS ARE ALMOST THE ONLY FLORALS IN THE WORLD, BUT THE ONE IN WASHINGTON D.C. HAS BEEN HOPING FOR THE FUTURE FOR A LONG TIME.
The Washington Floral House is located in the heart of D.D.C., but it’s no secret that it’s been struggling to survive.
The House has been on the brink of bankruptcy for years and the building was originally built in 1883 by the local florist who used to sell flowers to the White House.
Since then, the House has struggled financially and has struggled to pay its bills.
Last year, the White Trumpet, which has been a staple of the District’s street art scene for over a decade, was purchased by a new owner and will eventually be torn down.
So, the house has decided to turn to the internet to make a statement.
The White House florals website has been updated to include the florists name and logo and a list of flags, which it says are all “floral-themed.”
The site says that it will donate $50,000 to the local local floral society, the Washington Flourishers Association, and is asking for anyone who would like to donate $10, $20, or $50 to help out with the fundraising.
The florasters are hoping to raise $10k in the first three months of the campaign.
This is a very special day for our family and friends.
We want to make this as easy as possible for the community to participate and be a part of, said White House Florist Jessica E. Smith.
“The White House is a symbol of the city and is a great example of the way that we live here,” she said.
“It is so important that our floramists be able to display their own personal message to the city of Washington.”
The flourist has not yet received any money, but the campaign has already raised more than $100,000, Smith said.
