The Abbey Coffee, Art & Music Lounge is serving up more than coffee as it heads into new territory to feed starving children in far corners of the world by providing a warm cup of coffee here in Santa Cruz. The Abbey aims to use profits earned through coffee and product sales to purchase much needed food for poverty-stricken children in the third world.
This philanthropic initiative called "Give Hope" launches this month and will run through the end of the year. The concept is simple: each time a customer orders a Give Hope designated product, they will also be buying a starving child a meal - its that simple! The Abbey has partnered with a credible not for profit organization called Feed My Starving Children (www.fmsc.org) who have been hard at work since 1994 to end this hunger crisis. They, like the Abbey, believe that sometimes taking a small risk like this can have a huge impact.
The Abbey sees Give Hope as a natural extension of of its mission to be more than just a coffee shop by offering the local community an opportunity to be part of the bigger story of serving the global community. The Abbey knows that one small organiztion may not be able to change the world, but if lots of good-hearted people and small organizations come together, anything is possible.
Stop by The Abbey Coffee, Art & Music Lounge to join our local community give hope to our global community!
