HOW IT WORKS. READ MORE HERE...
The POWER OF 2 donates 2$ from every bag of delicious, fresh, artisan coffee sold to the Ottawa Food Bank
This is a campaign to address the new realities of ongoing isolation and severe financial strain in our community and to give back while we in turn receive help as a small business and keep our awesome staff employed. As we isolate ourselves, many of us may experience coffee emergencies as we are cut off from our favorite café. We feel that this may be a way to help the community at large. Check out our campaign log HERE.
The Awesome POWER OF 2
Through the Ottawa Food Bank, the POWER OF 2 campaign donates 2$ from your coffee purchase to people in need and then asks you to contact 2 friends for a virtual cup of coffee.
1. Purchase coffee for...
Stay safe, practice social distancing while you enjoy great coffee delivered safely to your doorstep.
- FAMILY & FRIENDS:
Make a virtual coffee date and have a cup of our brew over the phone with grandpa, grandma or a loved one of your choice. Fresh coffee and kind words work miracles on getting everyone through the day.
- THE AMAZING PEOPLE WORKING ON THE FRONT LINE OF THE PANDEMIC.
People who are helping keep us safe and served.
Send them a bag of coffee as a way of saying thanks! Many brave individuals in healthcare, policing, firefighting, food services and transportation are literally surviving on coffee at the moment and would really appreciate the gesture.
- ANYONE YOU CARE ABOUT.
Sending a bag of coffee is a simple act of kindness that helps everyone who is touched by it.
Purchase fresh local coffee beans and we will deliver them to whomever you want in our community. For each bag you send, you will be supporting a local business and $2 will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank which, more than ever needs our support.
2. Reach 0ut & Touch Someone (but don't touch anyone)
You can help spread the word on this initiative by encouraging 2 friends to purchase a bag of coffee and share it with their friends to keep the momentum of this campaign going. Social interaction is very important so make sure you connect with friends and loved ones to combat loneliness with joy and cheer. Our official goal is to raise $5000 for the food bank,
but we are secretly hoping to raise much more than that...
So spread the word!
This is the page where we report to you about how we are doing. Below is a our donation log in the form of a simple spreadsheet with Order IDs, Dates, & Bags Sold. At the bottom of each reporting period is the sum of all bags and the donation to the Food Bank. A huge thank you to those of you who have purchased coffee for yourselves or others (particularly for front-line workers) or made simple donations to the Food Bank.
During this time of isolation, please continue to reach out those most vulnerable and join us in giving what you can to causes in your community for the duration of this crisis and beyond.
