Help pours in for Jade's Flowers

DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

Jade Mitchell has already learned a lot of life's lessons. She's best known for her giving, making and selling Jade's Flowers, ink pens with a beautiful flower on top. By selling these, she's raised thousands of dollars for animal shelters and learned the reward of giving. Tuesday morning, she learned of the pain of losing her family's home to fire.

"I knew that I wasn't going to quit. But I knew it was going to take a while before we could start back up again," said Mitchell.

9News has done several news reports on Jade and her efforts to help animals live better lives, one flowered pen at a time.

She's now hoping she can rebuild her little enterprise but knows she is going to need some help.

"I think it's going to help a lot because we don't have anything right now," said Mitchell.

Some help has already come with one man giving Jade $1,000 to help her get her business back on track.

An account has been set up for donations at Capital One Bank - Julie Robertson Donation.You can send to juliehrobertson@yahoo.com through pay pal. It is linked to Jades Flowers account.
