Major supermarket chain selling rainbow roses to help homeless LGBTI youth

Morrisons rainbow rose support lgbt homeless charity

UK supermarket chain Morrisons are helping people celebrate Valentine’s Day and help LGBTI young people with these rainbow roses.

The roses have been dyed so each petal is one of the colors of the rainbow. Each one will cost £4 and 50p will be donated to The Albert Kennedy Trust. They are available from 11 February – making it perfect as a Valentine’s Day gift.

The charity provides safe homes and support to young people who identify as LGBTI. It was chosen by the supermarkets LGBTQ+ network.

The roses were created by Morrisons’ florists. Each petal is dipped into a different colored water, which the flower absorbs and turns it into a different color. The colors are blue, yellow, green, violet and pink.

Director of Fundraising at The Albert Kennedy charity, Carrie Reiners, said: ‘We’re delighted to partner with Morrisons on their Rainbow Rose campaign for Valentine’s Day.

‘As The national LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity, we are always looking to raise awareness and raise vital funds to support the work we do to provide safe homes and support to young people who face homelessness – just for being brave enough to come out to their families and communities.’
