Disclosure: Three Avocados is a nonprofit coffee company. I was sent free coffee from Three Avocados. Three Avocados has given me 2 free bags of coffee, and a free bag to giveaway to one of you (my readers) in exchange for talking about Three Avocados in this blog post.
Until recently, I had not heard of Three Avacados. When I was asked if I would be interested in this campaign, I did a little research and instantly fell in love with this non-profit and what their mission is. I hope you will all feel the same too.
A little background on the organization… As they describe their visit to a village in Uganda, they were deeply touched as an offering basket was passed around.
As the offering basket was passed around, a poor widow placed three avocados in the basket. It was literally all she had. And she gave it up, all for the sake of others. You see, in Uganda, the pastors do not receive any pay. The food they eat is given through the offering as they visit different villages. That widow had given all she had to ensure someone else could eat. What a beautiful gift.
They left wanting to find a way to help this village and impact others. That is how Three Avacados came to be. 100% of the net proceeds provide clean water in Uganda and education in Nicaragua. To really see why they are providing both water and education, check out this link. It is amazing to think that families have to make the choice between water and education.
But the organization is more than just a great cause, the coffee is amazing. The coffee is 100% Arabica and comes from Mount Ulgon in Uganda. I have been lucky enough to try it out the past week, and I am hooked.
Plus, I love being able to say my coffee is helping save lives. And guess what? You can help provide clean water and education as well. Buy some for yourself and try it out.
