Cappuccino for a Cause 2015


Gloria Jean's Coffee national fundraiser Cappuccino for a Cause is back and bigger than ever in 2015!



This community event takes place in Gloria Jean’s coffee houses nationwide on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March 2015. All money raised over the two days will go to Variety - the Children’s Charity and help build the futures of Aussie kids in need.

Gloria Jean’s coffee houses will celebrate this fantastic cause by hosting free, family friendly events across Australia that their guests and local community can enjoy.



In 2015, for the first time ever, Gloria Jean’s Coffees has also promised to double the usual donation for the first 65,000 cappuccinos sold - that’s enough coffee to fill over seven Olympic sized swimming pools!  So for the first 65,000 cappuccinos sold during the two-day event, a total amount of $1 will go to Variety*. A further donation of 40c will go to Variety from the sale of each chocolate heart cupcake during March.



Since joining forces with the national not-for-profit, Variety – the Children’s Charity in 2011, Gloria Jean’s Coffees has raised over half a million dollars for the charity. These much needed funds have improved the lives of Aussie kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs with the provision of specialised equipment and services, helping them overcome the obstacles they face and live life to the fullest.



Just some of the ways in which Gloria Jean’s Coffees guests support over the past five years has helped Aussie kids in need are:



·     - Variety Sunshine Coaches have been provided to six special needs school and organisations,helping kids to get out and about, learn and be a part of the community.



·     - 81 kids have been supported across the country with Variety Scholarships, helping kids reach their academic, arts or sports potential.



So whether you usually like a long black or prefer a piccolo latte, on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March, make sure you visit your local Gloria Jean’s coffee house and order a cappuccino for a cause!



*The donation of $1 per sale of cappuccinos is capped at a total of 65,000 cappuccinos after which the donation amount will return to 50c for each cappuccino sold.
