Happy International Women's Day!

To all our Queen Bees out there,

Happy International Women’s Day! We are so incredibly grateful for each and every one of you: mothers, sisters, friends, mentors, bosses, role models… all of womankind! In fact, there are so many inspiring, powerful women out there, we think it’s impossible to show them all the love they deserve in just one day. That’s why we’re launching a month-long My Queen Bee campaign, dedicated entirely to our fave fierce females. And we want YOU to take part, too!

#myQueenBee🐝

JOIN US in honoring all the amazing women in our lives by sharing your personal stories on Instagram. To get involved, all you have to do is share a post that generally answers these questions:

  • Who is one of your Queen Bees? (Because let’s be honest, badass women are everywhere.)
  • Why has the Queen Bee in your life been such an inspiration/role model?
  • How has she had a positive impact on you? On your community? On the world?
  • Why are you personally grateful for her?

We’ll be featuring your stories on our feed all month long, so don’t forget to tag your post with #myQueenBee🐝! The tag is really important because we’ve also got something extra sweet in the works. For every post tagged with #myQueenBee🐝 (don’t forget the bee emoji!), we’ll donate $1 to the University of California Davis Honey Bee Research Facility. That’s right, $1 donated for every single post tagged throughout the entire month of March! Honor the awesome women in your life AND help us raise our max donation goal of $5000 to support the bees—let’s do this.

We’ll go first, because our fierce female founder, Carly Stein, is the LEGIT Queen Bee of the Beekeeper’s Naturals hive. Carly is one of the bravest, most inspiring women we know. The thing that amazes us most about Carly is that she never shies away from a challenge, especially when it comes to her goals.

Just to start Beekeeper’s Naturals, Carly took a MASSIVE leap—leaving a “safe, stable career” at Goldman Sachs to pursue her crazy dream of starting a bee-focused wellness company from scratch. As if that wasn’t challenging enough, nearly everyone in her life encouraged her NOT to do it—that it was too risky and would be a massive mistake. But Carly dug in her heels, listened to her gut instincts, leaned into the fear, and hustled to make her niche dream a reality.

Even now as CEO, Carly always remains true to herself. She is wholeheartedly dedicated to being a force for good in the world, no matter what obstacles get in her way. She’s one of the coolest, bravest, most inspiring women we know. #myQueenBee🐝 #IWD2019
