Ok, I know that seems like an odd title to put on an adoption blog, but hear me out. Tara and I have just signed up with Just Love Coffee -- an organization that sells fair-trade coffee, with proceeds going towards the fair support of coffee farmers, orphans in Ethiopia, and personal adoptions.

Long story short, for every pound of coffee that is sold through our account, $5 goes towards our adoption fund. Our goal with Just Love Coffee is to raise $1,500 of our total adoption expenses.

All you have to do is visit the Just Love Coffee Atchison Adoption page and buy great coffee online, either on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. One time purchases can also be made by scrolling down to the "add to cart" section.

Maybe you love coffee and this is an easy sell for you. OR maybe you've been saying to yourself, "Hey, I've always wanted to try this strange drink called 'coffee' that everyone raves about but I've just never known how to go about it. Where can I get my hands on this amazing beverage?" OR maybe you've thought to yourself, "You know, I'm not a big coffee fan, but Alan & Tara are pretty cool. I'll buy some coffee on their behalf just because they're so cool." OR maybe you hate the taste of coffee and have no interest in drinking it, but your friend/relative/spouse/significant other loves it and you've been deliberating on a Christmas gift for him or her.

Whatever your reasoning may be, please consider this mutually beneficial opportunity! If you do purchase coffee or any other Just Love Coffee products through our account, please email us and let us know (unfortunately Just Love Coffee has not yet made it so that we can see who makes purchases). Thanks!
