Our Coffee Community
Even though we’re a small company, we take the time each year to put a lot of effort into supporting our local community through participation of fundraising events and giving back to charities we admire. Each year we also support 1-2 coffee growing community causes.
For 2014, we decided to support Grounds for Health. Grounds for Health is a non-profit organization that creates sustainable and effective cervical cancer prevention and treatment programs in coffee-growing communities, with the goal of decreasing the rate of cervical cancer.
"Cervical cancer remains the #1 cause of cancer death for women in low-resource settings despite being nearly 100% preventable."
Sadly, in developing countries cervical cancer kills more women than any other form of cancer. Cervical cancer is easy to detect, treat and cure if found early. What pulls at my heart strings is thinking about the moms, daughters, sisters and wives affected, so for me, anything I can do to help these women – I’m in!
