Karma for Cara Foundation awards microgrants to youths 18 years of age and younger who spearhead exceptional service projects in their communities. 15 year old Emma from Arlington VA started a project called Why Pollinators Matter with her award. Two years prior she began beekeeping, but the colony died because of pesticides. Emma now has successful hives, and her project involved educating the community about the importance of honey bees. Emma made presentations at local pre-, elementary and middle schools. She also offered personal hive visits to families so they could see inside a hive and learn how it works.
