What's Trending: 3 Ways Drinking Coffee Can Help People in Need

When we think of coffee, we think of alertness. but we should also think of awareness, because cafes and coffee roasters are using their profits to help those in need.  The List’s Bradley Hasemeyer has three ways people are caring with coffee.

1.  The Refuge Café in Phoenix Arizona.

The café has a social outreach program that works with veterans, foster kids and refugees and operates a program called Women’s Empowerment.  They offer work and vocational training for those that need it most using striving to become a self-sustainable charity.

 

2.  Coffee helps build a family: Adopted Coffee.

Owners Jake and Rachel McDonald wanted to grow their family by adopting and when they realized they would need about $40,000 to do it, they turned their kitchen into a donation-based cafe.  By using social media to promote their Saturday coffee events, they established a place for people to learn about the foster and adoption process. In April, they will meet their adopted baby girl.

 

3.  Three Avocados: Buying coffee beans to provide water.

Three Avocados, a not for profit coffee company, buys their beans from local farmers  in Uganda and sells it worldwide.  They use 100% of the profits to provide clean water and education in Africa.  Read their story here.
