The Bee & Mee shop was founded as a small business with a big cause. We envision a world one day where all children have access to the care, services and education they need to grow up healthy and happy, living a fulfilling life. While we may or may not be able to change the world, Bee & Mee is definitely going to try. Our 50% profit sharing model is meant to continuously support enhancing children's well-being in a sustainable manner.
This was the year we started the Bee & Mee shop out of the trunk of a car selling a few items to friends and family. At the end of the year, we were able to make a small contribution to support the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
With the launch of our online store we hope the growth in our eCommerce presence will allow us to make a greater difference this year. We will be directing our annual profit sharing to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) through the BC Women’s Hospital + Healthcare Foundation, to support critically ill newborns.
Besides the Bee & Mee shop’s annual profit sharing, we decided to take a step further and create the Bee & Mee brand of products, where each item is dedicated to a specific cause by directly sharing a percentage of proceeds. Naturally, our first initiative was partnered with BC Women’s Hospital + Healthcare Foundation; we created our collection of Bee & Mee Teethers and Accessories where 10% of all proceeds go towards supporting NICU.
Continuing with our ongoing support for critically ill newborns, Bee & Mee launched our Soft and Gentle Organic Cotton Onesie where 10% of all proceeds go towards supporting NICU at BC Women's Hospital.
As we continue to pursue our vision of, “a world one day where all children will have access to the care, services and education they need to grow up healthy and happy, living a fulfilling life”, Bee & Mee began partnering with Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. We created our collection of Bee & Mee Swaddle Blankets where 10% of all proceeds go towards supporting pediatric palliative care for children with progressive life-threatening conditions.
