like coffee??

We are excited to start our first fundraising campaign! Just Love Coffee is a Fair Trade Certified company, that was highly recommended to us by our adoption agency. $5.00 for each pound of coffee will be donated to our adoption expenses. In addition to donating to our cause, a portion of the proceeds go to building schools for children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The owner of the company has two beautiful adopted daughters from Ethiopia.

Here is a blurb from the companies website:
Love kids? Love coffee? We do too. There are an estimated 143,000,000 orphans in the world and this number is expected to grow. Rob Webb, founder of Just Love Coffee Roasters, knows personally how expensive the adoption process is. The thought of having to raise tens of thousands of dollars to adopt a child is staggering to many. It can be the obstacle that stands in the way of a family’s commitment to adopt, and many times slows down the process of bringing an adoptive family’s child(ren) home. Many people don’t know where to start. Just Love Coffee Roasters wants to be that starting point for raising money to help unite families with their children.

Our goal is to raise $2,000, one flight to Ethiopia. Which means we need to sell 400 lbs of coffee!!! We would love for you to share our link with your friends, family, and co-workers.
Thanks for your love and support,
Ryan and Ashlie
