Heal The Hive was formed by a few ordinary people in the summer of 2013. They recognized the issues that the world’s bees were facing and wanted to make a difference. Like many, they did not know the actual issues at hand and had only heard of this mysterious epidemic called Colony Collapse Disorder. They virtually became obsessed with the topic and started researching, attending lectures, and organizing a website that would clearly spell out the issues and potential solutions. It is a task too large for any one person or corporation to take on!
Heal The Hive believes that individuals and smaller organizations along with independent beekeepers and researchers will be the ones who can have the biggest ripple effect when it comes to this issue. Raising money for these smaller groups will have a direct impact on local communities. With community involvement word will spread more easily and make it out to the masses. While we need to raise awareness on a local and regional scale in the beginning, this problem is obviously a worldwide issue that is screaming for attention. Heal The Hive is a community of warm hearted, selfless individuals and volunteers who are doing anything they can to raise awareness!
Spreading The Word
What does it take to reach a global audience and get hundreds of millions of people talking about the bees? The internet! One of the core aspects of Heal The Hive is the crowd funding platform. As many of you may know, sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have been hugely successful raising money for independent projects. This is the new age and new way of raising large amounts of money to get around big corporations who are too politically and financially involved to make quick and direct impacts with their campaign attempts.
Check out the list of Project Partners and see if there’s one you’d like to help fund! Tap into your own community by suggesting beekeepers and groups with tangible needs and results. Community will prove to be one of the most important ways to make a difference because large pesticide and seed corporations simply cannot reach the heart of people on a local level in the same way as a grassroots organization.
Heal the Hive is on a mission to change any negative stereotypes the bees may be facing and get people excited to support them. They’re not out to sting anyone, all they want to do is pollinate your garden, provide us with food, and make the world a more beautiful place to live in. We are here to speak for the voiceless!
