    No one said the donations are going directly veterans. Although, I don't have a problem with that if that's what we choose. As a community here we haven't agreed upon which charity we would like to donate to yet.


    • As Sully stated: All the proceeds will go to a charity MA and/or NAM chooses (assuming we can get 100 pre-orders)." With that said, the 1st 100 bags will cover the label costs (500 labels), bags and coffee. The other 400 labels/bags that are sold over time will be what is donated. Donations should amount to well over $3000. 400 bags would be like 50 people buying 2 bags per month for 4 months.
    • Approximately 44% of the gross profits will go towards whatever charity is chosen.
    • This isn't marketing hype. I am a veteran; this is a veteran owned company. I have and always will work with veterans. I've worked with veterans for years in many different capacities well before I started this coffee company. And I work with more people than just veterans in my community, I try not to limit myself to only veterans.
    • I work with nonprofits outside of what I donate to personally and with the business. So I'm not biased to any nonprofit specifically, which is why I'm am more than happy to allow the members here (or at NAM) to pick the charity we donate the money to.
    • I am also starting up my own nonprofit with my wife and 2 other friends who are business owners. My wife is a LCSW at CHOC in Orange County, Ca. She's has actually worked at the VA too, so she has some good hands on experience in that capacity. She is the lead to provide services to veterans, children, teens and adults in a variety of mental health capacities.

    Perhaps we can create a list of people who are dedicated to purchasing?

    Maybe we can add that into the 1st post of this thread?

    I'd like to wait until I know we are close to around 100 bags, that way I can begin taking payment when the next step (label printing) is within a week or so. I do expect this to work out, but in the case it doesn't I don't want people having to worry about refunds, etc, in the case someone may want their money back.

    So far we're at 8 bags. I'm thinking when we have people dedicating to around 50+ bags I can begin accepting payment.

    What do you think?

    Sorry for the delay, been traveling.

    I'm in for 4 bags... so now we are at 8 committed. I'm thinking through if there is a way to track this. Frankly it maybe old school.. i.e. people posting here and we do a running tally.

    According to the votes 10 bags are secured. About 1/5 of the way there.

    If anyone has ideas of what they'd like the label to look like, send it on over. Artwork (pics, names, etc) that we can use in photoshop.

    The label will reflect my company's style, but will definitely have it's own MINI twist to it.

    If you gave Dave O a weekend to work on your car I bet he could really make that dull finish really shine. ;)

    Nice ALL4! FYI - I'm working on setting up a Countryman section on the site. Regarding the artwork, I have some updated MA logos that I will be updating the site with soon, when I do the next significant update (i.e. Market, Classifieds, etc).
