FrankKickstarter-640-480From February 5th to March 7th, 2014, we held a Kickstarter fundraiser to raise money to Bring Frank N. Foode™ to Life! We succeeded, and now we will have Frank N. Foode™ and Hawaiian Papaya  plushies that you can get for your very own. We also have some rewards left over from our Kickstarter campaign, so if you missed it, there is still a chance to get some of them. Share in the glory of this achievement by getting a limited edition T-shirt, or go for something really special with our Silver Bullet and Golden Grain packages. You can add any donation amount on top of your order, and because we are a tax-exempt organization, donations above the value of gifts that you will receive may be tax-deductible (talk to your accountant) in the United States.

Plant Plushies™

With the success of our fundraising campaign, Biology Fortified, Inc. intends to make a line of Plant Plushies™ to help teach about plant biology, genetics, agriculture, and food, beginning with the Frank N. Foode™ and Hawaiian Papaya plushies. If you want to suggest the next plant for us to plush-ify, contact us and let us know! By donating to get one of our current Plant Plushies™ you will help us with our educational mission and let us unleash a new plush plant on the world!

Lanakila Ānuenue Papaya

papaya-final-4-web150

Introducing our new plush character, Lanakila Ānuenue Papaya! Our readers overwhelmingly voted for the Hawaiian Papaya to be our next plushie, and our artist created a very creative character! Our design concept features a cute papaya fruit plush with a papaya leaf forming a hand, a papaya flower decorating its head, and a small papaya leaf as a reminder about the impact of the ringspot disease on papaya farms. Lanakila means “triumphant” in Hawaiian, and Ānuenue means “rainbow” – named after the Rainbow Papaya which was genetically engineered to fight off the virus.

Lanakila is also gender-neutral. Papaya plants are fascinating and can be male, female, both male and female, and there are also “fruiting males.” We want to educate people about the diversity in plants, so your papaya plushie can be whatever you prefer! “Lanakila” is gender-neutral, while “Lana” is feminine and “Kila” is masculine. Choose the name that suits your papaya. Follow Lanakila on Twitter and learn about papayas, and read news about biotechnology and agriculture in Hawaii!
