Nature Nate’s Honey Co. Makes Donation to Surprise Teen Baker and Philanthropist on The Rachael Ray Show
The number one branded honey company’s donation supports P.L.L.A.T.E., a non-profit founded by 15-year-old Michael Platt that supports kids facing food insecurity
MCKINNEY, TEXAS – July 12, 2021 – Nature Nate’s Honey Co., the number-one branded honey company in the U.S. and producer of 100% pure, raw & unfiltered honey, today announces it worked with The Rachael Ray Show to surprise 15-year-old Michael Platt with a donation to his non-profit called P.L.L.A.T.E., Power Love Learning Access To Everyone.
Over the last year, with many schools closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Platt and his non-profit, P.L.L.A.T.E., provided portable, healthy snack packs for kids facing food insecurity. Platt amped up his efforts with the launch of a GoFundMe as children and teens in his area were not able to regularly receive meals. The snack packs were available for pick up at local food pantries in his community.
“Michael is an inspiring social entrepreneur, and we are honored to be able to contribute to his efforts in supporting those in need,” said Nathan Sheets, Founder and CEO of Nature Nate’s. “We’re impressed by Michael’s initiative to use his gifts of baking and entrepreneurship and evolve them to meet the changing needs of his local community. At Nature Nate’s, we share a similar vision to support families and communities through our Honey Gives Hope program, and we’re excited to encourage his efforts.”
To round out his philanthropic efforts, Platt is also the founder of Michael’s Desserts, a purpose-driven bakery located in Bowie, Md. The mission of the bakery is to not only make life sweeter but also fight food inequality. For every dessert purchased, Platt donates a dessert to someone in need.
“We’re excited that The Rachael Ray Show introduced us to Michael and enabled us the opportunity to surprise him with a very deserving donation to P.L.A.T.T.E.,” said Sheets. “Not only are we big fans of Rachael, but we especially love how she celebrates everyday heroes who are making a difference in local communities across the country.”
In 2021, Nature Nate’s has increased outreach to non-profits, ministries, hospitals, and schools to give back in a way that is as pure, raw and unfiltered as the honey they bottle. Through Honey Gives Hope, Nature Nate’s has donated funds to a variety of local and national organizations, such as East-West Ministries International, Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support, Minuteman Disaster Response, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Treasured Vessels Foundations and more.
