HWB is a small, grassroots nonprofit that relies on community support and donations to help us achieve our goals and to support community herbalism and holistic wellness disaster relief in communities. Providing funding is a direct way to support HWB projects, but we also welcome donations of herbal first aid supplies, extracts, dried herbs, and more to help us get down to the ground green medicine to the people.

Donations immediately help us get needed supplies, ship more boxes out to clinics, and respond more quickly to needs. THANK YOU!

We are shipping to support POC in communities throughout the US. Stress relief, herbs to support wellness, a healthy immune system, for trauma and anxiety, all are helpful. This is also a big need during and after fires, hurricanes, etc.
Often right after a disaster, people are scrambling to get supplies and volunteers coordinated, trying to find out what they need and when. When random items are shipped en masse, not only do relief workers have to intake, sort, verify safe/labels and organize - they also need to figure out what they have so they can make or assemble kits of what they need - all while they are scrambling to respond and get to the people that need them most. Once it dies down, they often have a LOT of leftovers and no time or funds to ship them to someone else - not to mention storage of all of the extras was not likely optimal (dry, climate controlled) during the response. Also, often by the time donations are collected, packed, and shipped from donors, the response is winding down. We want to be ready in advance, so we can mobilize support to local chapters and members quickly. We also have many Chapters hosting frequent free clinics and getting donation into one central place where we can work to fairly divide to reach the most people and clinics is also great! We can also ship to clinics monthly or on a regular schedule so they don't have to manage a lot of inventory and we can adapt and send what is needed seasonally.
So, at HWB we work to intake supplies here. We inventory, sort, and store in climate controlled location. We prep most needed items here, we can ship immediately as soon as there is a disaster or a clinic. We also ship what is needed, and extras are kept for the next disaster or free clinic or need. In addition to shipping for disasters we also support and empower local people to continue working in their communities long after aid organizations have gone.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF HWB.
