Step 1: Plan your event

Every year, hundreds of Bee Ambassador volunteers like you, all across the U.S., are looking for a way to make the biggest impact to help the bees. But how can one person make an impact that even the bees feel? Well, there are many ways!

Here’s what some Bee Ambassadors are doing:

  • Hosting dinners or parties and asking for donations in lieu of birthday gifts
  • Selling muffins door to door
  • Hosting concerts
  • Hosting walkathons or bikeathons
  • Selling artwork
  • Hosting a honey tasting
  • Host a BeeBlitz and have people donate $1 for every bee spotted
  • Setting up lemonade or beverage stands
  • Tabling and offering kids' crafts at a local Farmer’s Market
