About Bixbee

The B Corp certification is a validation of our mission to grow as a socially responsible venture. Our participation will continue to raise awareness and encourage both start-up and established ventures alike, to foster similar business models.

The Change We Seek

According to UNICEF, 101 million kids worldwide do not attend school; many of them due to the high cost of tuition and supplies. Bixbee seeks to help combat this issue by providing kids with the tools they need to attain an education, and at the same time raising awareness about this global inequity. Education is empowerment. Without it, many are left with little opportunity to better their own social, political and economic situations, as well as those of the communities that surround them.
