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.
Support Herbal Aid!
Businesses: Do you have any overstock, dents, or dings? Donations are tax-deductible and go towards our herbal free clinics & herbal relief efforts.
