Your Beacon Purchase Makes a Difference!

In the spirit of bringing light – and happiness! – to gardens everywhere, PanAmerican Seed donates a percentage of its global Beacon Impatiens sales to a charitable organization each year.

In an effort to act locally to help fight a global disease, PanAmerican Seed will partner with a local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to support their fundraising efforts and help fight a disease that affects 2.8 million persons worldwide. The National MS Society is driven by its mission that “We will cure MS while empowering people affected by MS to live their best lives.” During the 2024 gardening season, Beacon Impatiens will build awareness and show support for those living with this disease.

“We all know someone who’s received a life-changing diagnosis, and our 2024 MS charity choice comes with personal connection. Now, through colorful gardens around the world, plus active participation in local fundraising events, Beacon is ready to join the fight against MS to help make a difference.”

– Sarah Makiejus, Global Marketing Manager for PanAmerican Seed

Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms vary from person to person and may include disabling fatigue, mobility challenges, cognitive changes, and vision issues. Currently there is no cure. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical to minimize disability. The National MS Society, founded in 1946, envisions a world free of MS, and provides support, resources, and information for those diagnosed to help move their lives forward.
