Since I started my business, the purpose was to make a difference in the lives of those I served and beyond.
At the beginning of 2020, while setting intentions for the year, I asked myself, "how do I want to make a difference in the world?" From that question came two answers: Feed the hungry children in Africa and provide them with clean, drinkable water. What could be more fulfilling than that?
I started to imagine... "Such a simple endeavor could impact an entire village. What kind of effect would that have on their lives?" In my mind, I imagined reflecting upon the year and thought, "if this was all I did this year or even the next decade, it would be a successful year (or ten).
Most projects have a goal of $4,000 to be funded. As a result, I vouched to raise $4,000 to build one well by August 2020. To do so I will donate 1% of each sale of Raus Coffee till its completion. To meet my goal I will also need your help. Will you help me bring clean water to a village in Africa?
"Coffee for Humanity" is more than my tag line, it's a belief that change doesn't have to be big to grand to be great. Each of use can change the world through the smallest of interactions we have with one another. Help me create "Change for Coffee". Join me and let's do something beautiful.
