How We Give Back
For almost two decades, Kara has served on the board of VisionWorkshops, a worldwide non-profit organization focused on teaching at-risk youth the art of photojournalism. VisionWorkshops oftentimes uses National Geographic photographers as teachers.
This program encourages children who may have difficulty learning or speaking the native language, to learn and communicate in new ways. Providing learning opportunities to kids in underserved communities makes everyone’s future brighter. It’s been Kara’s commitment to raise awareness of and give to this organization since its very beginning. To date, she has raised/given in excess of $185,000. A portion of all profits made from Bee Inspired® is donated to VisionWorkshops.
For a Greener Tomorrow
One Tree Planted
One Tree Planted is a Vermont-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that partners with individuals and businesses to plant trees across the globe. Since their founding in 2014, One Tree Planted has worked with global reforestation partners to replant millions of trees!
In partnering with One Tree Planted, we will be having a tree planted in Appalachia for every jar of Wildflower Honey that we sell. We're excited to be working with such a fantastic organization to help restore our native ecosystems. Tree species replanted include persimmon, oak, chestnut, and dogwood — all of which provide food sources for native pollinators and other wildlife!
