It makes us so very proud and grateful to announce that we have raised over $100,000 for philanthropic causes! When we launched this venture just a couple years ago, we would have never imagined we would be here today. A silly idea -- an adult spelling bee -- rapidly transformed into a mission: to change the way we think about and interact with philanthropic giving.
We knew so many people, especially young people, wanted to give back to their community, but didn't have the time to dedicate or the funds to spend on gala events. So we decided to create an event experience that was affordable for everyone and more closely resembled what we want to spend our disposable income doing: having fun, playing games, going to concerts, checking out comedy shows. We wrapped this up in a bundle and created We Bee Spelling.
But we only built the car; all of our tremendous supporters drove it. You helped us to turn lighthearted entertainment into a lasting impact for thousands of people being supported by incredible causes. We are humbled to have partnered with organizations doing life-changing work like Blue Engine, iMentor, Center for Comprehensive Health Practice, Change for Kids, Preparing Leaders of Tomorrow, and Education Through Music. Thank you for believing in us and working together to make special things happen.
This is just the first of many major milestones we look forward to achieving. Together, we look forward to making fundraising events and charitable giving accessible, inclusive and a heckuva lot more fun for everyone.
Much Love from Team We Bee!
