Coffee for a Cause
As if we needed more reasons to drink coffee
Supporting local nonprofits and our community is very important to us. A portion of our proceeds go to a charity or non-profit we love, with a new cause chosen every quarter.
This quarter’s cause is the dZi Foundation in Ridgway, CO, a non-profit founded in 1998 by longtime mountaineers Jim Nowak and Kim Reynolds. Named for the ancient Himalayan etched stone beads said to bestow health and protection upon the wearer, the dZi Foundation works with Nepalese communities and individuals that others cannot reach to create sustainable programs for lasting change.
The dZi Foundation works in partnership with remote communities in Nepal to create lasting improvements in their quality of life.
They accomplish this through implementing community-driven programs that improve public facilities, public health, income levels and educational opportunities while preserving community unity, the natural environment, and indigenous culture.
