It's simple, you bid and 100% of the proceeds go towards improving the living standards of communities around the world.

About the initiative
During the early years of the organization, armed just a laptop and a cell phone, some of our volunteers were alarmed by the number of coffees I'd have per day. On average around 5-7 coffee. What they didn't realize is that for every $5 coffee meeting I'd leave with a $25-50 donation. This kept us going for years!
