4 Reasons to Give a Beehive
Donating a beehive builds a healthier earth & helps fights hunger.
Here are four reasons to give a beehive to a family living in poverty:
1. Bees Are Good for the Earth
Bees pollinate about one-sixth of the flowering plants worldwide. Due to the widespread use of pesticides, bee populations have struggled in recent years. Giving a beehive is an easy way to help the earth.
2. Honey Is Healthy
Honey is a natural sweetener that boosts the immune system, helps prevent cancer and can be used to heal burns and wounds. Giving a beehive to a family provides them with more than enough honey to help them and their children stay healthy.
3. Honey = Source of Income
Extra honey can be sold to other families as a source of income.
4. Bees Multiply Farm Produce
One beehive can double the yield of local fruits and vegetables over time, helping many families’ gardens and farms thrive.
