Cappuccino for a cause

Do you like coffee?  Yup.  Do you like to help charity?  Yup.  Then please read on!

This Friday 28th October and Saturday 29th October Gloria Jean’s Coffees across the state of Queensland are donating 50c from EVERY cappuccino sold and giving it to Variety Queensland, the children’s charity.

Variety helps thousands of children each year gain mobility and communication, and thereby, their freedom, independence and the chance to join in with other kids in their community.  Having worked with Variety over the past couple of years, I have seen first hand the smiles they put on the faces of disadvantaged children.

CEO of Variety – the Children’s Charity of Queensland, Les Riley said “the campaign, and the money raised would give thousands of Variety children the opportunity to enjoy what many people take for granted.  And to know that you can make a difference and put a smile on the face of a child simply enjoying a cup of coffee, is just fantastic.”

Cappuccino for a Cause is an initiative of, With Heart, Gloria Jean’s Coffees global foundation, and this year aims to raise $150,000 for Variety. Variety helps thousands of children each year gain mobility and communication, and thereby, their freedom, independence and the chance to join in with other kids in their community.

So get in a grab a cappuccino from Gloria Jeans this weekend!
