Beacon Gives Back In 2021
This year, we’re so happy to have the opportunity to present donations to two worthy organizations. Thanks to proceeds from Beacon® Impatiens’ global seed sales, PanAmerican Seed shared its donation with charities in The Netherlands and Canada to help fight Pulmonary Fibrosis, a progressive and deadly lung disease.
This year’s charitable give-back reached $81,000! The Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) and the Dutch Association of Pulmonary Fibrosis Patients (Pendersfonds) each received a check for $40,725 (US) on behalf of PanAmerican Seed and Beacon Impatiens.
Both the CPFF in Canada and Pendersfonds in The Netherlands work to support people living with the disease, as well as provide education and advocacy to ensure access to quality healthcare.
As part of a dedicated mission to “shine the light” on worthy but less-widely known charitable organizations, we have committed to donating a percentage of its global seed sales of Beacon impatiens to a new charity each year. You can feel good about choosing Beacon Impatiens for the shade each gardening season, as your purchase goes toward support of these causes.
A new charity will be announced soon for 2022. Be on the lookout for the announcement and How you can help us to ‘shine the light’ on lesser known issues.
