#GivingTuesday with HEADStrong

Today is #GivingTuesday – a day we’ve decided to embrace as a respite from all the shopping-deal-charged madness of the past weekend and a way to kick off the charitable season that is upon us.

Only around since 2012, #GivingTuesday was started as a way to celebrate philanthropy and to encourage giving. It harnesses the power of social media and the generosity of people around the world to create real change for communities, families, and individuals.

This Tuesday, we are proud to say that we are teaming up with the HEADStrong Foundation with an initiative focused on improving lives affected by cancer. We will be donating 25% of Tuesday’s online sales to HEADStrong – a non-profit organization dedicated to helping patients and  families navigate their journeys with clarity, normalcy, and quality of life.

“At La Colombe, goodwill is part of who we are. We strive to be productive members of communities in which we work, from the neighborhoods around our cafes to the towns and regions where our coffee grows. We are proud to partner with the HEADStrong Foundation in supporting and comforting those challenged by cancer, as well as their families, from all over the country.” – Todd Carmichael
