About this project


THANK YOU for participating in the C•A•N-Xmas-Campaign in cooperation with Original Beans.
Your donation of €40 enables the peaceful co-existence of people and wild elephants in the Udzungwa Mountain National Park in Tanzania.
With it we install a beehive with the local farmers - Why a beehive? Elephants fear bees and the hives installed around the fields therefore deters them from trampling over crops. At the same time, the honey gathered creates an additional source of income for the farmers. 
With your support, we have a real chance of preserving these elephants as well as enabling livelihood security for the Tanzanian farmers! 
Give away a beehive today and let us know the name of the person you want to gift so we can write their name on the hive (leave the name either in the donation message or per email: If you also write your address we can send you a picture of the installed beehive.

At this LINK you can download a few motifs to print out and use as Christmas cards.

Behind the Beans:
To change the world for the better - with chocolate – that’s the basic idea of Original Beans.
Since its foundation by Philipp Kauffmann in 2008, the company has been finding, protecting and crafting rare and exclusive cacao varieties to be made into award-winning additive-free luxury chocolate. For every bar sold, Original Beans plants a tree in the region of origin and thereby consequently reforests the habitat of endangered species as well as improving the income of the many farmers involved.
To date, over 1,000,000 trees have been planted and preserved and combined with its 100% compostable packaging, Original Beans’ chocolate is climate-positive.
