Use Twitter to Help Save Honey Bees #HelpHoneyBees

Honey Bee

Sure, bees are pretty much bastards, but honey is pretty awesome. More importantly, it’s sad that honey bees have been disappearing at an alarming rate over the last few years. Bees are extremely important for pollenization; several specials of flora and numerous vital crops depend on bees. You can help save honey bees through a simple Twitter message. TechCrunch has reported:

Running through November 11, Häagen-Dazs will pay $1 for the first 500 people that tweet everyday with the hashtag #HelpHoneyBees. The money will go towards both a UC Davis research project to further look into Colony Collapse Disorder, as well as help fund the Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven, which aims to teach people about how to create their own honeybee farms.

I encourage everyone with a Twitter account to send a message that includes “#HelpHoneyBees”. The effort is minimal and you’d be helping a great cause.

Lastly, in the immortal words of Eddie Izzard, “I’m covered in bees!!!”
