Buy some bees for a family in need!

Bees are pretty amazing. I had always wondered what a queen bee looks like, and thanks to our folks at Heifer Farm, now I know.

The more we know about the other creatures we live with on our planet, the more we care about them and want to protect them.

Watch this video from Heifer Farm. It's important to care about bees because they (along with the other pollinators) are responsible for pollinating about 1/3 of the food we all enjoy.

 Give some bees to a family, and help pollinate the world's crops.
