Gift of Honeybees

Join Mikaila of Me & The Bees Lemonade in Making a Difference

Can you imagine a world without honeybees? Imagine a world without yummy strawberries, tasty broccoli and delicious nuts and seeds. Not only do bees pollinate crops, but they also help pretty flowers grow. And yes, they make delicious honey.

Realizing early on the importance of honeybees to our day-to-day lives and future, Mikaila pledged to help save the bees by investing both her time and resources.

From the very start, Mikaila invested a portion of the profits from the sale of her lemonade to organizations fighting hard to save the honey bees. She also volunteers her time teaching youth and families on the importance of the honeybees and how to help save them.
