Support Change Coffee Day on 2 December

Cafés Australia-wide are invited to participant in Change Coffee Day on 2 December.

On the day, coffee drinkers are encouraged to donate the price of a cup of coffee or simply their spare change at participating cafés when ordering their coffee to help raise funds for vulnerable and AIDS-affected children in sub-Saharan Africa.

“Cafés supporting Change Coffee Day are helping change children’s lives. There is a great spirit about the day and there are no onerous tasks for café operators besides encouraging spare change donations,” says Robyn Borruso, Founder of Change Coffee.

“Most of the participating cafés from last year experienced increased sales on the day due to the increased footfall, as well as receiving positive feedback from their customers for being involved in a worthy, meaningful campaign.”

A $3.50 donation can feed 15 children for a day. Donating spare change equal to the cost of a coffee will feed one child for 15 days or 25 people donating spare change equal to the cost of a coffee will feed one child for a whole year.

Change Coffee Day raised more than $8500 in 2015. This year, more than 200 cafés from Australia, New Zealand, United States, Philippines, France, Spain, and South Africa are supporting the cause, and more are encouraged to join.

Participating café owners are supplied with all marketing collateral to help promote the cause leading up to Friday 2 December. For their efforts, cafés will also receive a Change Coffee T-shirt, a Change Coffee collection cup, a poster and information, stickers and social media support.

All donations will go to not-for-profit organisation Eniwe Children’s Fund, which is on a mission to improve the lives of orphaned and underprivileged children through various nutrition, housing, and education initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa.
