To celebrate HONEY Design's 20th anniversary in business, the hive hatched a creative idea that would fully display our expertise and support two causes close to our hearts. After all, with a name like Honey and our advocacy for authenticity in branding, it was natural to want to support research into why honeybee populations are disappearing at alarming rates across Canada. Connecting to artists in need was another element that locally, can have a positive impact on our community – and our economy. Beecause raised funds for the Canadian Bee Research Fund nationally, and the Arts Project, locally.

As the bee-shirt says 'Believe in honeybees and artists.'
Artists of all kinds, from across Canada, were invited to enter an online juried exhibition celebrating the theme of honey. With more than 140 entries, twenty were selected and auctioned off at a gala evening that included bee-tinis, honey-flavored hors d’oeuvres, silent auction and bee-shirt sales.

BeeCause raised $9,375 and the funds were divided equally to the two organizations. Thank you to the artists, our corporate sponsors and to our attendees who made it a remarkable event.

why are the bees disappearing


Every third bite you eat depends on honeybees. Honeybees, via pollination, are responsible for 15 to 30% of the food we eat. But in the last two years the domesticated honeybee population - which most farmers depend on for pollination - has suffered annual colony losses averaging 28 to 35% with some regions of the country experiencing losses in excess of 60% of their colonies. Research is key to determining why this is happening in order to reverse the trend.
