Get to Know: Beezus Christ, Super Car!
Born in the land of Dust and Honey, Beezus comes before you bringing sweet salvation. He is here to shelter you from the sin and suffering rampant in the city of Black Rock. As you wander lost through the desert, he offers you his flesh and blood in the form of honey and mead. Beezus has come to save you. He does not judge you.
But seriously. Beezus is a bee mutant vehicle set to cruise the playa at Burning Man in 2013. We’re building a honey bar on the back to serve honey from Burner beekeepers around the world, and the occasional mead brew if you catch us at the right time. It’s already looking like we’ll have representation from 5 continents! The mead is currently being homebrewed by our crew in San Francisco!
Beezus appeared to Michelle “Smallfry” Lessans as a vision from the divine. Now with the help of an amazing group of friends, builders, and creative geniuses, and the help of people like YOU we are manifesting this vision to spread the word of our mighty leader!
“But how can I be a part of this?” you ask? Well there are several ways!
Option 1: Donate funds! First of all, we are in the midst of a rocking Kickstarter campaign with some great prizes, including bandanas, pendants, etched jars, and private Beezus cruises. Donating to this is a great way to give us the boost we need!
Option 2: Donate honey! We are still taking honey donations from people around the world, and we would love to have some of yours to share!
Option 3: Come to our fundraiser! On July 16th we’ve got a rockin’ event planned if you live in the Bay Area! We’ll be having an art auction/costume contest/dance party, and it’s only $5 if you dress up! Here’s a link to the event: http://www.facebook.com/events/128198764054032
Come celebrate with us and help bring Beezus to the playa for Burning Man 2013!
