Help Bridgette rebuild her flower shop after a tragic fire

Donation protected
Bridgette owns and operates her small local flower shop, My Own Creations located in downtown St. Croix Falls. Saturday morning while she was preparing flowers arrangements for multiple funerals over the weekend she came out to find her truck horn blaring. As she opened the driver's door to try to turn it off, she saw a small flame and the truck then exploded. It caught the building and My Own Creations storefront on fire along with the apartments located above.

While working through her own tragedy, Bridgette still found a way to finish and deliver all of her scheduled arrangements for funerals on Sunday and Monday. My Own Creations is the only local flower shop in St. Croix Falls and highly rated. Jill Swank-Springer one of the customers from this weekend said, "I was absolutely impressed by the beautiful arrangement that was done. Just a note the owner was under complete stress she lost her business to a fire This is amazing women that deserve s 5 stars."

We are starting this fundraiser at $5,000. If you've experienced a tragedy like this yourself you know insurance companies aren't always quick. We don't know as of yet what total costs will be and all units on the south end are likely a complete loss. The timeline to rebuild and reopen My Own Creations' doors is likely not a short one. All funds will go directly to Bridgette for the purpose of getting My Own Creations up and running again. No donation is too small. Please help support in any way you are able.

Thank you so much in advance for your kindness and support! ❤️
