MissionMade is a Minnesota non-profit whose mission is to help other non-profit and charity partners increase their revenue and the capacity to tell their story in a new way to existing donors and new customers.
MissionMade does this by creating, purchasing/managing inventory, and fulfilling orders through the e-commerce stores we host on behalf of the non-profits we represent.
MissionMade manages each non-profit’s customized store and donates 20% of all revenue from their store back to that non-profit partner and their mission (the national average is 3%).
If you would like to know more about MissionMade, have a non-profit you think we should work with, have a product we should consider selling, or if you want to make a donation to our cause, you can visit us at MissionMade.org
Compatible Technology International (CTI) is a nonprofit that is dedicated to helping families in developing countries access innovative farming tools so they can produce food more sustainably and bring their crops to market.
We believe that a world without extreme poverty is entirely possible, and for us, it starts with providing tools for communities that are traditionally overlooked by mainstream engineering. We design tools in collaboration with smallholder farmers who evaluate our prototypes and provide feedback to ensure our designs are effective and culturally appropriate. We deliver our tools at an affordable price through direct sales to small farmers, entrepreneurs and organizations. We believe in the powerful idea that if people in poverty can improve their food production and raise their incomes, they are on the way to opening up greater opportunities for themselves, their children and their communities.
Helping farmers produce an abundance of nutritious food and bring it to market is one of the most effective methods of reducing global poverty.
We collaborate with small farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa to develop practical, affordable tools that help communities harvest and process their crops more efficiently and effectively. In Malawi, we are working with women peanut producers to design new tools for harvesting, stripping, and shelling their nuts, so they can increase the production and value of their crop.
We work with partners globally to distribute our tools, which provide the rural poor—women in particular—with opportunities to transform their lives. Women's groups in Kenya, Guyana, and in over 50 countries across the globe are running thriving micro-enterprises selling peanut butter and other products milled with our grinder. In Senegal, we are distributing grain threshers to help farmers and entrepreneurs reduce their drudgery and improve the quality of nutritious pearl millet grain.
Support Our Bees Package
Hand-grown and created in MN this “Support Our Bees” package includes a seed packet of bee-supporting herbs and wildflowers to plant in your garden as well as delicious honeybee-made-products! Thank you for supporting MN Bees and our environment!
SEED PACKET: This seed packet was cultivated just for you by Danielle, a fellow bee-supporter and owner of an organic minifarm in northern MN. Made up of 5-10 regionally, MN native annual and perennial herbs and wildflowers, once planted and grown, these organic seeds are sure to attract to bees in your garden!

BEE POLLEN INFUSED HONEY JAR: Loaded with fresh pollen, collected by bees, to give a new spin on honey. Raw honey was great before, but now it is loaded with even more antioxidants, nutrients, amino acids and protein for your morning smoothie! Bee Pollen Fortified Honey has been infused with a mix of spring, summer and fall pollens collected from our hives throughout the entire growing season.
Local raw honey is renowned for its allergy remediation benefits, due to the small amount of pollens that are naturally present in the honey. Research published in the International Archives of Allergy and Immunology in May 2011, found that patients consuming honey containing the pollen which they are allergic to gained significant control of their allergy symptoms, more so than patients using convention allergy medicine. I guess mother nature has always known best!
Size: 10oz jar. This is a heat sensitive product, and will melt if left in a warm area.
HONEY STICKS: These pure-raw-honey sticks are completely free of artificial dyes and colors - the way nature intended - Enjoy!
Seed Packet: Danielle lives on a 3-acre mini farm in northern Minnesota with her husband and their 3 dogs. She supports native MN bees by growing specific herbs and wildflowers the bees enjoy. Danielle uses only biodynamic practices and organic farming on their minifarm. The seed packets she creates are made of a mixture of 5-10 regionally, MN native annual and perennial herbs and wildflowers that are attractive to bees and other beneficial insects.
Honey Sticks and 10 oz. Jar: After working in the food and agricultural industry for nearly 20 years, Dustin and Grace have learned a thing or two about taste. Both were raised on family farms alongside furry, or feathered barnyard friends. Their love for food and the environment led them from the field into the kitchen. They share a passion for knowing where our food comes from, how it is produced and how we can create a more sustainable system of production. They share their love for honey with you and hope you enjoy their fantastic product: Bee Pollen Infused Honey and Pure Honey Sticks.
