OUR STORY

Q. Who are we?
A. The Little Bee Co is a socially conscious ‘Get & Give” company that provides resources to vulnerable children in need. You can check out the GET & GIVE description listed under each product to see how its purchase gives back.

Q. How was The Little Bee Co founded?
A. Our story began in 2010 with a baby, blowouts & one mommy desperate to make a change! From travels to areas affected by poverty, Founder Jona and her husband Chad saw firsthand the need for a reusable diapering system. Months of design at their kitchen table in Central PA led to The Little Bee Co launch on Mother’s Day 2011 as a simple Facebook page with a handful of likes and big dreams of change. Since then, The Little Bee Co has expanded to include blankets, apparel and more. As of 2017, we are run by a dedicated group of 4 moms on a mission!

Q. How can I help promote your cause or get others involved?
A. There are many ways to help by donating, spreading the word, or organizing events. Whether you are a student, a stay-at-home mom, an event coordinator or activist, we would like to hear from you. Email us at [email protected]

Q. Where The Little Bee Co located?
A. We are currently web based only with home offices in Central PA. We are currently in the renovation process of a warehouse and community outreach space in Milton, PA.

WHY A BEE?

Because we believe in the impossible! When cuddled up with my littles to watch Bee Movie one afternoon, I couldn’t help but fall in love with all these little pollinators represent. Hard work and doers of impossible feats. “According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. It’s wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway, because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.” And neither do we! –Quote from Bee Movie

BEE ONE FOUNDATION - HOW WE GIVE

Q. What is Bee One Foundation? 

A. Bee One Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and nonprofit subsidiary of The Little Bee Co, created to carry out The Little Bee Co ‘Get and Give’ Mission!

Q. How often do you donate?
A. We have bi- quarterly Diaper & Blanket Drops where we partner with Non Government Organizations and other nonprofits to distribute Bee Changed Diapers and Bee Loved Blankets.
Q. Why diapers?
A. Many times babies in areas affected by extreme poverty wear split pants, rags, even plastic bags. This is not because those caring for them don’t care, it is simply because funds are limited. When it comes to spending, food and medicines trump diapers. Because of this, a vicious cycle ensues as the spread of disease created from improper diapering and bed sharing causes an already bad situation to be far worse. It is our mission to provide this very necessary resource to those in need.
Q. Why blankets?
A. There are many babies born to drug addicted mothers within the US Foster Care System. These babies often suffer the effects of withdrawal shortly after birth. During these days swaddling can be calming to the baby. Our single layer swaddle blankets provide blankets to these babies and their foster families.
As for older children in the US Foster Care system, many kids show up at a new doorstep with nothing to call their own. Our children have always found comfort and console in their favorite blankets. Our Loved Snuggle Blankets provide these same blankets to kids in US Foster Care because every child deserves to feel loved!
Q. What if I don’t need a blanket or diaper, can I still purchase for a child in need?
A. Yes. Please comment at checkout DONATE ALL and your purchased items will be donated along with the already donated items your purchase provides.
Q. How can I get involved in your cause?
A. Please email us at [email protected]
