In the summer of 2017 as a new non profit, we visited St. John U.S. Virgin Islands to study Colony Collapse Disorder’s impact on an economy that is highly dependent on Honeybees. Shortly after our visit, Hurricane Irma struck and wiped out the entire local beekeeping industry. As a result, Save the Bees launched an emergency campaign to help restore operations for up to five beekeepers. Recent financial support from the Waletzky family was a tremendous boost to our St. John project. The impact of our project will be a thriving and sustainable beekeeping industry that sells products locally and around the world. Save the Bees is also achieving strong results in our work in preparation for the Big Bee Count thanks to generous donations from the Hayman family.
In 2017 and 2018, we also received in-kind support from Brand Evolve, ESRI, Inc., Google, GovFlex.com, Mr. IJ Hudson, MOBOMO, TechSoup, and Seaberry Communications. A special thank you to the Change Happens Foundation, and the Munson Foundation for their generous gifts of $5,000 each in support of the Big Bee App Development and the Bring Back the Beekeepers of St. John Hurricane Irma recovery projects. We also thank supporters who who donated through FACEBOOK, GoogleOne Today and the many donors who requested to remain anonymous.
Thank you all for making our project milestones possible in our first year of operation.
