I was introduced to this cause by a co-worker, I was blown away at this companies mission and I had to share it. Three Avocado's is a non-profit organization that sells coffee to help provide clean drinking water in Uganda. Founder Joe Koenig statement touch my heart.
In January of 2010, I had the amazing opportunity to visit Uganda. It was a trip that forever changed my life. It opened my eyes to a world that I never knew existed. It opened my eyes to things that I thought only existed in a National Geographic special. A world where people actually live in mud huts. A world where children are literally starving. Where the nearest water source is a mile away. And you'll get sick if you drink it. A world where orphans are raised by the village. A world rampaged by AIDS, malaria, and thousands of other things I couldn't even imagine.
If you want to help this great cause and get great coffee, I urge you to at least try it. I will be buying my first bag today.
Remember that we are very fortunate to have the opportunity to chose how we eat because of the plentiful choices we have in the United States. We chose to eat clean, others do not have that choice.
Let's start by giving the choice of clean water!
