Community Driven looks to support small businesses while growing concierge services
15 Apr 2021
When Christina Ream put a shoutout on her Facebook business page a couple weeks ago asking if anyone would like to buy low-cost cases of flowers, she didn't expect quite the turnout she got.
Through her businesses, Community Driven, Ream had collected orders for more than 400 bouquets, for which she encouraged patrons to spread kindness by giving bouquets to random people throughout the city, business employees, family, friends, and anyone else whose day they might brighten.
“It’s all about paying it forward,” Ream says. “I wanted to facilitate creating a comfort in giving.”
Ream has spent the majority of her working life in retail jobs, but in November 2020 decided to take the leap into starting to get her own business.
