MAKE a difference this Mandela Day, 18 July, by buying a cup of coffee at participating coffee shops in the Upper Highway area­ as 67 cents of every cup of coffee sold will be donated to Ingane Yami Children’s Village.

Based in Shongweni the village’s vision is aligned with the heart of Madiba’s legacy, which is to see orphaned and abandoned children rescued and restored.

Patricia Deacon, marketing and fund-raising officer at the village said: “Our children are knitted into a loving family environment and we give them top-quality education so they can be released as South Africa’s next generation of leaders.”

Speaking about the campaign Deacon said: “The idea to run the 67 cents campaign started last year, when we realised many people in our area haven’t heard of Ingane Yami.

“To tell our story, we decided to link up with one of the communities most common passions - coffee.

“By linking up with locally coffee shops we have been able to share more about Ingane Yami to thousands of locals, while also raising funds for the village,” she said.

She said the campaign was such a huge success previously they decided to run it again this year.

“Last year, with the combined effort of 20 local coffee shops, we were able to get an Ingane Yami ‘67 cent campaign’ coffee cup into the hands of 30 000 people.

“Not only did that equate to over R20 000 raised, which goes directly to supporting our children’s development through food, clothing and schooling, it also led to amazing spin-offs of individuals being touched by our vision and wanting to get more involed, both personally and through their corporate connections. We trust this year will be ever bigger.”

To support the campaign, visit a coffee shop and participate in a cup in aid of the children.

Participating coffee shops include Assagay Coffee, Bellevue, Caffe Mobile (Shongweni Farmers’ Market), Capp n’ Chino (Highbury), The Deck (Curro), Go-Fresh Café, Jacksonville, Johnny Bs, Jooma, Juice Kitchen, Le Verdure, Lineage, Oscars, Sam’s Homegrown Café, Sprigs and Stretta.
