Give It All Away In May

So I don't normally do plugs, but I thought this one was an important one.  Storyville Coffee, located in Seattle is giving away 100% of their profits from May to IJM (International Justice Mission).  IJM is a Washington, DC based human rights agency that "secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression.  IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to ensure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to promote functioning public justice systems."  

I have several friends who work for this agency both in DC and internationally.  It is amazing to hear the work they are doing to fight for and secure freedom for victims of slavery.  IJM is unique in that they work towards both helping the victims but also bringing the perpetrators to justice so that they will no longer be a source of harm in their community.  

So what can you do?  Well you can order fresh coffee from Storyville for $23.72 (that price includes shipping) and all of the money will be given to IJM.  I'm told it is so fresh the coffee is roasted the same day it is shipped.  It is a win-win deal for everyone.  You get great coffee and all the money goes towards securing justice for victims of slavery.

So if you want to learn more about IJM go here.
If you want to learn more about Storyville's giving it all away in May go here.
And if you want to order yourself some fresh coffee go here.

And now I'm done plugging.
