Information, awareness of the coffee crisis gained from traditional print media to the internet generated a feeling of basically guilt/shame/frustration in this home roaster & coffee consumer.    It is through CoffeeKids that I deal with these "feelings".  As long as I can afford to drink coffee I will support CoffeeKids.  Thank-you Mr. Fishbein for your efforts.

Bill, Thanks for telling us your personal story and for letting us actively participate in your mission!

The feeling that I have is that Coffee Kids is not a charity that supports the weak, but one that allows the coffee growers to strengthen and develop themselves. They are the ones who are making change. All the best!

Wow.  I will print this article and ask if I can post it, along with information on how to donate, at my local coffee shop.  Thanks again!

Dear Bill,

Your story based on this  quote "If you change one person, you change the world" has
impressed me so much that I will mention it on my 2 sites in hope to generate more
donations for your wonderful non profit organisation.
