We feel it entirely necessary to ensure that research is funded that can answer the question of why this is happening, and find solutions to this troubling situation.
Westmount, Quebec (PRWEB) November 16, 2011
Beezid held a birthday party for their members on November 3rd, which kept on going with an after-party on November 5th, in which Beezid members saved an average of 91.4% off MSRP during a wild 57 hours of bidding that featured an unprecedented amount of savings.
Beezid’s 2nd birthday event kicked off on Thursday November 3rd, when members were treated to an impromptu view of Zid's surprise party (link to video on YouTube). The party started soon after with 30 hours of prices frozen at 2% of MSRP and free shipping on all auction wins. Members were treated to hourly mystery auctions, and expanded lock limits.
After a short break, the event began again on November 5th when all auction prices were frozen at 10% of MSRP. In addition, this half of the event featured risk-free bidding on every item, making the savings even more remarkable.
“We had such a great time this weekend celebrating our birthday with our friends,” said Max Bohbot, CEO of Beezid. “We were cheering everyone on, and are so excited to have been a part of such a great event. Our amazing members are precisely why we have been able to celebrate another birthday, and it's an absolute pleasure to hold an event like this as a show of our appreciation for them.”
As a means of passing even more birthday presents along, Beezid has announced that it will be donating $2,500.00 to the Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Honey Bee Research Facility at the UC Davis Department of Entomology.
“We have a lot of fun with Zid, our bee mascot, and have always been aware of how crucial bees are to our environment,” said Max Bohbot, CEO of Beezid. “Having been made aware of the declining populations of bees in some areas, we feel it entirely necessary to ensure that research is funded that can answer the question of why this is happening, and find solutions to this troubling situation. Besides, what better way to honor Zid on his birthday then to help save his family?”
The Laidlaw facility, located in California, is uniquely suited to investigate declining populations of bees, with research geared towards the implementation of solutions.
"Interest in honey bees is reaching new heights and we are grateful to Beezid for making this donation to support honey bee research at UC Davis," said Edwin Lewis, Interim Chair of the Department of Entomology at UC Davis. "Bees play an essential role in our environment and in agriculture. We encourage everyone to learn more about bees and support research to resolve the challenges of colony collapse disorder."
