Birdie and Pete was started in honor of two very special people, a brother and sister. You are probably wondering where the name came from, “Birdie and Pete”. Well, from a VERY young age, even before they could remember, everyone called them Birdie and Pete though their names were Bonnie and Mike.
But why name our store after them? Well, we are big on family and helping others. You see, this brother and sister combo had and have been through a lot of trying times. Each has stepped toe to toe with cancer, but unfortunately Bonnie lost that fight, while Pete has faced cancer 5 times and just recently beat cancer the 5th time.
Cancer has been apart of our families for as long as we can remember. We have thought about opening a store where we can not only sell the highest quality products but to also be able to give back.
With EACH item purchased, we will donate $1 to childhood cancer research. Yes that is right, $1 for each item ordered, not each order.
In August of each year, we will choose 3 worthy charities, then have our fans vote on where the money should be donated. As September is Childhood Cancer month we felt it appropriate at that time.
Thank you for reading our story!
