Even though we’re a month into the new year, it’s not too late to pick up the 2011 Grounds for Health Benefit Calendar: Just ‘Cause.
This limited edition calendar was conceived and created by Kerri Goodman-Small, owner at CoffeeTalk & the Daily Dose, entrepreneur, and much-beloved champion of the specialty coffee industry for over 20 years. Kerri, who is also a Grounds for Health Board member, wanted to do something “different” this year to help raise funds to support our work. The Just ’Cause Calendar features Specialty Coffee Industry professionals in the buff … or how we like to put it: “tastefully nude” – all to benefit our good cause. Henceforth, you can think of the Grounds for Health staff collectively as Ms/Mr July.
You can buy your calendar (discounts for packs of 10 or more) online at Amazon. Net proceeds benefit Grounds for Health so buy early and often: Just ‘Cause: 2011 Grounds for Health Calendar
And when Kerri is not thinking up creative ways to raise money to support Grounds for Health, she’s out there on the stump, telling our story. In December, Kerri represented Grounds for Health at a special event at Boyd Coffee’s in Portland where she spoke about our efforts to end cervical cancer as the #1 cancer killer of coffee-growing women. Check out Boyd’s recent offerings that also benefit Grounds for Health: Buy Boyd’s GFH Coffee. Also view the photos below of the event.
As we begin our 15th year, we’d like to this opportunity to recognize all our supporters like Kerri, who have thought outside the box to bring new funds to and awareness about Grounds for Health.
