Bumble bee wins the chocolate bar vote -- THANK YOU
Thank you to everybody who voted for the bumble bee in Endangered Species Chocolate’s “Vote New Faces for New Flavors” campaign in response to the emails I posted over the last two weeks. The excellent news is that the bumble bee was one of the two winners and will be featured on a chocolate bar! The Xerces Society will also be receiving a $1,000 donation from Endangered Species Chocolate. This is a fantastic outcome and was only possible because of a huge outpouring of support. In the end, the bumble bee got well over 18,000 votes. Wow!
Thank you to each of you who cast a vote. This is a fantastic outcome and was only possible because of a huge outpouring of support. In the end, the bumble bee got well over 18,000 votes. Wow!
Thank you, too, to Endangered Species Chocolate for including the bumble bee and Xerces in this campaign. Six animals were in the candidates list: bumble bee, orangutan, red panda, monk seal, peacock, and wallaby. Each of these were equally deserving of votes, but only two could be winners. Congratulations to the Marine Mammal Center, whose monk seal was the other champion and will also be appearing on a chocolate bar.
