New Orleans Green Small Biz Support Fund

This campaign will help support my small business, New Orleans Green during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As you may know, we offer potted house and patio plants, jewelry, and home decor -- all handcrafted from repurposed materials.  

We are passionate about doing business with a minimal carbon footprint, and about the healing power of meaning and beauty in our personal environments.  Our sustainably sourced, unique, and creatively inspired products are meant to inspire, soothe, and bring happiness.


Like many other small businesses, New Orleans Green has had to cease daily face-to-face retail operations in the city.   We are also impacted by the cancellation of local arts markets and festivals, lessening our ability to get products to customers.

During this time I am taking the opportunity to significantly revamp and streamline operations so that New Orleans Green can come back even stronger than before.  Through this effort I am gifting unneeded inventory and supplies to local residents to help with their gardening and artistic endeavors. 

The funds raised here will be used to pay New Orleans Green's ongoing business expenses (accounting, enhanced e-commerce capacity, required licenses and fees, etc.) during this hiatus.   And, I am grateful for GoFundMe's Small Business Relief Initiative that will give a matching gift of $500 when New Orleans Green has raised $500. 

The effects of the pandemic are wide-ranging and can be quite different from person to person.  My request for funds comes only to those of you who feel you can comfortably make a donation, should you choose to.  I feel tremendous humility and gratitude -- as well as awareness of the many who are suffering and in need during this time.  

We can all give love and appreciation -- please know that you have mine whatever your circumstances.  Take care of and be kind to yourself as we all face change both big and small.    xoxo, Rosalie
