Did you know there are around 20,000 different species of bees in the world?

Did you know only female bees sting?

Did you know bees can't see the color red.

Did you know that for just $30, you could give the gift of honeybees to a family in need?

And that family will have vitamin- and mineral-rich honey to eat and sell, wax for making candles and up to three times the crop yields, thanks to these little creatures?

Bees

Give the gift of bees today in someone's honor, and YOU'LL be the bees knees!
