      Of course the first step is to revive the hive, but let's take an additional leap to help the hive THRIVE! Spread the word far and wide, with 5 days left we can push them past 40k! Things always have a way of costing more, and it will be money very well spent. Whisper campaign... pssst.. hey friend, have you donated? ;)

      Creator Jymme Golden on March 19, 2013

      Just left this on my Facebook page. Hope it helps.
      "I know I posted this a week ago but these two are so close to their goal that I just had to post again. They are just too adorable and doing some great work. Don't you just want to give them a few bucks? Seriously, who can resist... honey, bikes, enthusiastic young women dressed like bees and doing good in our fair city... what more could you possibly ask for?"

      I love Bees! I love Bicycles! Best of luck from northern Colorado!
      (Since I'm in the process of getting a full body tattoo suit of Bees, backing you good folks seems like a no brainer.) :)

      Best of luck filling the goal! Anyone in the beekeeping scene near Minneapolis & St. Paul knows we sure could use a facility like this one. The proposed location is also nice and centrally located for processing. Keep up the great work!
