This year marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Did you know that Katrina led to 5,000 reported missing children and it took seven months to connect the last child with her parents?
This summer, during the height of the hurricane season Save the Children wants parents and their children to be prepared should disaster strike again. Save the Children is imploring parents to make sure their children have an emergency contact card with not only information for local family, but also family who live out of town. This is critically important because during disasters local networks and telephones lines are usually down. Being able to call family who are not affected by a storm is important to connect children back to families.

And beyond that it has always been important to scale our efforts as a community of committed mothers to reach as many as we can through the power of the Web.

For over five years Three Avocados has funded global water and education projects in Uganda and Nicaragua through the sale of their coffee and branded products like tumblers, T-shirts, and coffee mugs.
I recently received two bags of Three Avocados arabica ground coffee – one from Nicaragua and the other from Uganda. Both are quite good. I am a big fan of very strong, dark roast coffee and Three Avocados definitely does not disappoint.
When I opened my box of samples, the smell of coffee hit me before I even saw the coffee bags. I loved that immediately. In my experience if I can smell ground coffee before I even open the bag I know it will likely be very good.
