Coffee Stories

http://www.coffeestories.co

Coffee Stories is a pay-it-forward storytelling project offering a voice to everyday coffee shop-goers via gifted coffees. Coffee Stories was created to spread coffee kindness and create community, to offer a medium for our society to empathize with each other over common pieces -- coffee and stories. We're striving to make ordering a 'coffee stories' coffee' as ubiquitous and quotidian as ordering a coffee for yourself; to leave the coffee shop kinder, more hospitable than we found it, and to listen attentively to what others think, feel, and are moved by.

Your City Sports

http://www.yourcitysports.com

The idea for Your City Sports was born in 2013 - while volunteering at an event for the homeless we learned that socks were the #1 need for people on the streets. Our vision is to create a brand of high quality athletic socks that are fun to wear. With every pair of socks sold, we donate a new pair of socks to a homeless charity in your community.
