Grandpa, "Honey"

Hi! We are Carly and Molly and we are now 18 and 20.  Nine years ago our grandfather died from esophogeal cancer.  We wanted to do something to remember him and to make sure that others would not get sick and die like he did.  We have been beekeepers since we were little, and we figured out that we could actually sell our honey and donate all the money to the help beat cancer.  We call our company Hives for Lives, and it is now nine years old.

In total we have donated over $200,000 to cancer research with our Local Honey Local Money program. Profits from our sales have gone to the Penn Abramson Cancer Center, Stanford Hospital, the Fox Chase Center, St Jude's, MD Anderson, the Mayo Clinic, Hunstman, Dana Farber, Sloan Kettering, the American Cancer Society and the Susan G Koman for a Cure foundation.  We have been in nine regions in Whole Foods Markets.  We are recruiting other kids to sell and raise bees along with us as HELPER BEES.  We have sold in more than 30 states! So -- if you love honey, let us know if you want to help!

Take Care and Good Health!

Molly and Carly, molandcar@hivesforlives.com
