Planet Bee's mission is to “change the world – one bee and one student at a time!” They encourage environmental literacy and offer educational workshops (now virtual) to foster lasting care of the struggling honeybee. With our donation, they are directly reaching out to students to inspire a life-long passion of conservation!
Heifer International let us know that Maruca's donation was received by the organization during a time when they had a “Double the Gift” sponsorship. That means that our donation of 50 new beehives was met by a Heifer partner and ultimately funded 100 new beehives! These beehives are part of the Rural Entrepreneurs program which affords female farmers the ability to double the number of their beehives and their income!
Bee Informed Partnership is a data driven nonprofit designed to gather information on all things honeybee related! Their research and findings are made available to the public so that we can all take part in preservation efforts. Knowledge is power!
The Bee Conservancy focuses on creating bee sanctuaries that enrich diverse ecosystems. They have increased stable hives and found dedicated areas in urban environments to let honey bees flourish!
Our contributions to these charities would not have been possible without YOU! We believe that by helping the bees, we can help others as well. While Maruca Design maintains the philosophy of producing contemporary bags hand-made in the USA, we recognize that we are part of a global community. The organizations that received funds were thoughtfully chosen to help our bees at home and abroad! If you feel like you missed out on all the buzz, fret not! Although our donation program is completed, we still have travel bags, accessories, and crossbody slings in our Buzzed fabric! At Maruca Design, we create artsy bags which reflect the intent and individuality of the wearer. We hope you will share our joy in bee-ing able to give back this season!
