What is Bee The Swarm?
Bee The Swarm is a crowdfunding social network that funds causes from around the world by donating 50% of our gaming revenue and letting our gamer’s decide where the money goes. The more you play, the more say you’ll have in where the money goes. At Bee The Swarm, you can save the rainforest, cure cancer, build schools, help with natural disasters, or even start your own campaign and fund it, all by playing video games. We are a lot like GoFundMe, but where the revenue comes from ads and other game revenue instead of people’s credit cards.
People naturally want to do good things for the world, it’s Bee The Swarm’s mission to make it fun and easy for them.
We have 4 games live now on the android and ios app stores. Find out about our games here.
If Zynga, Facebook, and GoFundMe had a baby, it’d be called Bee The Swarm. Bee The Swarm is the world’s first social network that does more than connect people to the world around them, but enables them to interact with it, to change it, and to make it better. Bee The Swarm’s secret formula is to give people the entertainment they know and love from video games and social networks, but extend that beyond entertainment and into actively making the world a better place.
The Bee The Swarm social network allows users to create their own campaigns and earn "bees" to fund them. These bees are distributed by other users after earning them playing games in the Bee The Swarm network. The campaigns are viewed in a newsfeed, similar to Facebook or Instagram. To learn more about the Bee The Swarm social network, view our Frequently Asked Questions section.

Users earn “bees” through Bee The Swarm gameplay and then can donate those bees to good causes of their choice - started by other Bee The Swarm users or even to their own campaign. All campaigns and campaign updates are found on the Bee The Swarm social news feed. As campaigns earn enough bees to reach given milestones, we fund the campaign for the milestone $ amount and then the campaign continues towards the next milestone. The funding potential is limitless.
