    About

    Buy a Bee, Save a Bee!

    My name is Noor, and I'm an 8th grader in Washington, D.C. I designed the Imagine Plush Bee because I wanted to help bees. I've been gardening since I was a toddler, and I have always been fascinated by bees. Did you know that one in every three bites of food we eat depend on pollination? And that bees are the most efficient pollinators?

    It took me almost a year and a half to finish the Imagine Plush Bee. I've made a lot of decisions in that time. But my most important decision was partnering with the Pollinator Partnership, the largest non-profit group dedicated to protecting and preserving all pollinators. I am thrilled to donate to the Pollinator Partnership with every sale.

    Thanks to overwhelming support, we've sold out of our first run of 500 bees! But you can learn more about me and how my bee came to bee on my website, www.imagineplush.com, as well as learn which local stores might still one of the now elusive Imagine Plush bees! Or you can follow my journey on Instagram, at https://www.instagram.com/imagineplush/

    I hope you'll join me in the fight for our future!
