    Bzzzzzt! Designed specifically for the non-beekeeper! We get it that not everybody wants bee stuff. I mean, after all, it is a little crazy to put your hands into a box filled with stinging insects.

    Pledge any amount you choose and know that your help is APPRECIATED!!! We'll send you a heart-felt thank you! The bees will too. Thanks for helping to save the bees!
