You're probably wondering what a plastic cup has to do with a charity that works with coffee farmers. I'm so glad you asked. The KeepCup is an Australian product that's meant to reduce the stream of disposable coffee cups entering the waste stream. It's billed as the first barista standard resusable cup because it's designed to fit under standard group heads -- that means the barista at your favorite coffee bar can pull your shot directly into your cup. They come in four different sizes, including an extra-small 4-oz size, and you can design your own in up to 11,000 different color combinations. They're pretty reasonably priced, as well.
However. I'm not pitching KeepCups. I'm making a pitch for Coffee Kids. See, earlier this afternoon, Coffee Kids tweeted that KeepCups has committed to contribute $5 to Coffee Kids for every Twitter Follow ( https://twitter.com/#!/KeepCup) and Facebook Like they receive between now and Christmas Day. So go on. What are you waiting for? It doesn't cost you anything but a couple of minutes time.
