Every December we donate a portion of the proceeds from every bag of coffee you buy to send kids to school in Guatemala through the Child-Aid Ethical Bean Scholarship Fund. Established in 2004, the scholarship fund contributes $10,000 each year to Child Aid, which provides children in Guatemala with the finances for school registration fees, uniforms, and school supplies. The remainder of the funds raised in December will be donated to Project Somos Children’s Village, a Vancouver based charity that will provide shelter, support and opportunities for orphaned and abandoned children in Guatemala.
Last year we raised more than $32,000. Let’s see if we can’t raise even more than that this year!
