We have VBS this week at our church and Tate’s group was challenged to use $5 as seed money to raise money for the Acuna, Mexico missions. He thought about a few options, but then got really excited about selling Gobena coffee to the moms and dads dropping their kids off at VBS.
The sign he made says, “You can help in 2 ways”, “Buy a cup of coffee and the money will go to Acuna missions”, and “Go to www.gobena.org and buy coffee to help orphans”. Then, we made flyers to hand out with information about Gobena and how to order their awesome coffee.
He made $15 to give to Acuna (which was pretty remarkable, considering we were selling hot coffee in June in Texas) and he helped spread the word about buying Gobena coffee. He was excited about combining the two good causes. Our pastor, who orders coffee for the church, also picked up a flyer to check it out. Yay!
Gobena uses 100% of their profit to help orphans all over the world. And, the coffee is all organic. It’s really not that much more than what I would pay at the grocery store and I’m buying coffee anyway. I would much rather spend a little more, knowing the profit is going to such a great cause, instead of buying some executive at the bigger coffee companies a vacation home in Maui.
Ellie was excited about sticking around to help out, too. Good job, Tate and Ellie!
