WWBIC to host Grounds for Relief week

The Wisconsin Women Business Initiative Corp. along with its social business venture Coffee with a Conscience will host a “Grounds for Relief Week: Hearts for Haiti” initiative Sunday, Feb. 14. through Saturday, Feb. 20.
Coffee with a Conscience location will sell La Hotte coffee by the cup as well as by the bag throughout the week.
La Hotte coffee is grown in the mountainous region of southern Haiti. All proceeds from the sale of the coffee will benefit FONKOZE, a micro-finance and economic support organization in Haiti, as well as Youthaiti, a Milwaukee-based charitable organization that encourages and supports Haitian young people in developing ecological projects in sanitation, water source protection, community gardening, and reforestation efforts in their own Haitian communities.
“It makes sense for Coffee with a Conscience to partner with FONKOZE, not only because of the devastation that the Haiti earthquake has had on children, adults and families in and throughout Haiti, but because FONKOZE has always dedicated its mission work to the poorest of the poor in Haiti with care and dignity,” said Wendy Baumann, president of WWBIC.
For each 12 ounce bag of coffee that is sold, $2 of the purchase will go to FONKOZE and the rest will go to Youthaiti.
La Hotte coffee will be sold at the Coffee with a Conscience shops located at the Milwaukee Art Museum, 700 N. Art Museum Dr., Milwaukee, and the Schlitz Park Business Center, 1555 River Center Drive.
