Our Response to COVID-19 in the US
We were able to send several shipments to NYC healthcare workers of food, healthcare grade antimicrobial cleaners, water filters, personal items (compression socks a big hit!), and paper bags for the unfortunate circumstance of saving N95s. We received a generous private donation of $5000 to support these efforts along with several personal donations from across the country. Every penny counts. Thank you to everyone!
The HCWs who came to the aid of NYC, their experience was invaluable, their spirit, unmatched! As their work in NYC winded down, we networked the amazing HCWs we supported in NYC with the Navajo tribe through another organization providing volunteer HCWs to the Tribe and other locations in the country. We also shipped masks to the Rose Bud reservation made by one of our amazing nurses who worked tirelessly. More masks were made by other volunteers nearly match an N95 level of protection for HCWs.
We are shifting gears back to our Healing Heroes efforts. COVID-19 has created an additional backlog of Veterans with disabilities receiving there first rating exam to receive compensation and to get the care they need. (See below)

Being the Change
We owe our Veterans and their families every opportunity to be well. Veterans and their families can be empowered to fully live their potential with access to the right resources and supportive services. Due to COVD-19 the backlog of Veterans that need to be seen to receive compensation for service related disabilities and care has accelerated. OWN is working in collaboration with Integrative Ability Medicine - I AM! to provide these services. I AM is the only group in the N. Idaho and Eastern Washington of Pacific NW region that provides ratings and care for Veterans with disabilities particulary Traumatic Brain Injury as there are no providers at the VA in either ID or WA who provides this care.
Please Help Support our Vets!
With our organization’s mission always in mind - Healthy Planet, Healthy People - we build collaborations to address the interrelated issues of well-being, food security, clean water, climate change, self and community empowerment through education and entrepreneurship. Honduras Hope is a big little project centered around building an award-winning green community center that will serve as the foundation for a Regenerative Community and health clinic located in central Honduras. Education focuses on children and woman. The education and enterprise of women is the heart of a Healthy community, the soul of a Healthy Planet.

The honey bee is crucial to a healthy planet and healthy people. Our first colonies are happy and well, and new colonies being established at H. Bee Kind Acres (TM) in Idaho. We are dedicated to protecting and nurturing the health of honey bees through restoration of land and promoting colonies. Alleviating poverty by supporting small business entrepreneurs dedicated to honey bees will be the next stage our of work under Honduras Hope. We invite you to learn more and lend your support.
