Do It

Change your Concept of Charity

Your Perception
August 6, 2013

We believe that the traditional charity model is broken. Money is raised, spent and then it is gone, forcing the organization to once again depend on the inflow of donations. We believe there is a better way. If that same charity dollar is put into a [social] business format, that dollar can have endless life to do endless good.

It is time to give that charity dollar more life.

On Tuesday, August 6th, we are launching an Indiegogo campaign to crowd-fund a Social Business, the Jhai Coffee House. Jhai is the world’s first completely philanthropic coffee roaster & cafe located at the source. All business profits are invested into children's sanitary education and clean water projects in the local Lao coffee growing community.

    once I discovered my real passion was the third sector and philanthropy/charity, I've always wanted to go to Asia (Laos, Vietnam, Cambodja). I really wanna help and if by chance you need someone to help//learn as a voluntary, I'm able to :)
