I have just heard about an awesome organization called 963 Coffee. They recognize the fact
that while we are paying $4 for a cup of joe, coffee farmers around the world aren't even making a living wage. The middle man is making ALL the money.
The Project’s purpose is twofold: to provide a fair wage for coffee farmers in poverty-stricken communities, and to allow groups and individuals to use the coffee to raise funds for mission projects and relief initiatives.
Which brings us back to the BlackBerry's. 963 Coffee is allowing the Berry Adoption Fund to be an affiliate. Which means that 40% of the money you spend at 963 will go straight to bringing Becky & Billy home.
How awesome is that?

I have set up a button on the right of the blog that will take you to the wesbite anytime you want to purchase.
Now go drink your java AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT!
I went to place my first order with 963 and was surprised by the $7.50 shipping charge for a $10 coffee order. I just spoke with Erin from 963 and this is what she said:
Here are a couple tips to beat the shipping cost over load… first if possible ship it to a “commercial address” such as where you work or your church. FedEx and UPS both charge a $2 residential surcharge to ship to a residential address. Another tip is to order more at one time whether that is for you to keep on hand, or if you get together with friends or neighbors to place one larger order together instead of many small orders. We have seen shipping prices spike along with the cost of oil. Unfortunately the shipping cost has not come down with the cost of oil. The bulk of the charge is basically to ship something to somewhere and then that cost gradually goes up based on how much and where. For example it may be $8 to ship 1lb to you via Fedex but it is probably $10 to ship 10 lbs.
I checked what she said and she's right. The shipping only goes up slightly when I order a lot more coffee. So definitely order in bulk, whether for yourself or combine orders with friends.
I still think this is totally worth it. Just wanted to give you a heads-up.
Oh and FYI~ the Fundraiser Starter Kit and the DVD don't count towards the 40%, but EVERYTHING ELSE does.
