Keep your honey sweet this Valentine's Day
This Valentine’s Day don’t be a buzz kill – keep your honey sweet!
Kiwis looking to wow their valentine this year with something other than the usual flowers or chocolates are being encouraged to consider something you can’t see, smell or taste, from TEAR Fund’s ‘Gift for Life’ – like a bee-keeping kit – but don’t worry; it’ll still be sweet as.
While many are struck by Cupid’s arrow on the most loved-up day on the calendar, others around the world will still be struggling to make ends meet and provide for their loved ones. Christian aid and development agency, TEAR Fund, offers a practical way for New Zealanders to show the true meaning of love through an unusual and life-changing gift. Although the bee-keeping kit won’t go anywhere near your loved one, it will go (in their honour) to a family in need in a developing country.
Lila of Nepal says, “Thanks to the training and bee-keeping supplies we received, my husband and I were able to start a thriving honey business, which provides us with a stable income.”
TEAR Fund marketing manager, Sheena Duffy says, “For as little as $25, families in need are given the skills and tools needed to become self-sufficient bee keeper. We reckon the sheer thoughtfulness of this gift will have your valentine buzzing for days!”
