The Grounds for Health Roasters Challenge

The Grounds for Health Roasters Challenge

April 27, 2015

We are participating in the 2015 Grounds for Health Roasters Challenge and we are hoping you can help too.

 

What is it and how can I help?

It's a friendly competition between coffee companies east and west of the Mississippi to see which coast can raise the most money for cervical cancer prevention in Ethiopia. Donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in its support for Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon, a public-private partnership focused on reducing deaths from cervical and breast cancer in Latin America and Africa. We recently made our donation and we hope you can make a donation too. Of course, we really want the West Coast to win but we totally understand if you live on the East Coast and you want your donation to fund the East's donation. Either way, everyone wins.

CLICK HERE to learn more and donate.

The challenge ends on Mother’s Day 2015 and the goal is $200,000
