THE STORY:

The story begins with coffee beans, the original wee stars of this story.  It also includes a group of very poor but very determined people in a remote mountain village in the Northern Philippines.  And, hopefully, it includes you....

Jeff and I plan to close the 6900 mile distance between Portland, Oregon and Balluay, Philippines when we head out with my parents on October 7.  In this small barrio in the Northern Philippine highlands, my parents’ nonprofit organization has started a project to support life skills training for villagers--single parents, older adults, younger people-- who have had little opportunity or hope for supporting themselves or their families due to their remote location and limited resources.  These mountain villagers are among the poorest people in this developing nation.    

Some people are currently trying to sell the high-quality coffee beans grown in the area, but the diminished value of green (un-roasted) beans combined with laborious transportation into town means minimal income so far.  BUT, we’ve been told that roasted coffee can generate significantly more income, make significantly more impact in helping these villagers get on top.

So, here we are, going virtual door to virtual door to try to raise funds for a coffee roaster and related costs.  We have found a NW-made coffee roaster that would work very well and would love to tuck it under our arm and carry it directly to Balluay in October.  Any extra funds would be used to support the other yummy income-raising projects that these industrious women are starting--for example, making and selling banana chips and healthy snacks.

Can you help?  Can you donate a few "beans" to help cute kids and desperate but hopeful and determined parents?  I know “beans” doesn’t sound like the same thing as money, but actually, in this case, it is.  I can guarantee photo proof would follow and a steamy mug raised in your honor.
