It’s easy to imagine that our lives have no purpose and our actions no impact. However, in reality, that is very far from the truth. Every choice we make is like a ripple in the world. 

In America, we take for granted the presence of many things, food, shelter, and clean water. This morning when I woke up, I didn’t have to wonder if I would be able to make coffee, or bathe, or do laundry. Those things are a given to me every day. But in areas such as Northern Thailand, and many other third world countries, access to clean water is a privilege, a gift, and one that this never taken for granted. 

I want my time and efforts here on earth to matter. So when I found Hope Bridges, and the work they do, I was excited to jump in and be involved. While there are a number of places you could concentrate your efforts, the best way to truly make a difference is to choose an organization that is doing good, and get plugged in. 

So, what if I told you that by making a small change in something you already most likely do every single day could help bring clean drinking water to impoverished children in Northern Thailand? See, if you’re anything like me, you wake up and begin your day with a hot cup of coffee. Sound familiar? If so, let me tell you how you can impact children in the Nong Tao children’s home by enjoying some of the best coffee you’ll ever taste. 

We will be replacing these tanks with new ones! Nong Tao has 42 kids and will go through about 10,000 liters per day!

Hope Bridges is making it easy for you to partner in the life giving work they do by offering you coffee that is shade grown, handpicked, harvested and processed in the mountains of northern Thailand. There is no deforestation, which promotes genetic diversity. 

Right now, $6.50 of your purchase of a pound of Hope Bridges coffee will go to fund a new water purification tower for the Nong Tao children’s home. The total cost for this project is $2500 which covers the tower, including delivery and installation. The project has already been given $500 so there’s only $2000 left to raise. This means that it only takes 308 bags of coffee to fully fund access to safe, clean, drinking water for the children in the Nong Tao home! 

Who wouldn’t want to be a part of doing good while enjoying good coffee? 
Who can you share HOPE BRIDGES coffee with today?
