Reaching Beyond Ourselves ...

We at Heart, Body, & Soul are big believers in the importance of paying it forward and giving back — being contributors to the community of which we are a part.   So we identify a different Project or Program (we hate to call them charities) each month to highlight.  We spread the word about their cause in the shop and on our website and talk them up on our social media sites.

We also collect funds for the cause in the shop (so don’t be surprised when you go to check out and get asked if you want to donate a dollar or some change to Second Chance, the Food Bank, or Finding a Cure for Breast Cancer!)

AND of course we then guilt our fellow coffee & tea addicts into contributing to the greater good.  You see, we don’t sell coffee here at HBS.  We just serve it – gratis – to anyone who wants some.  (Because, hey, WE have to have it and figure many of you out there feel the same.  Ditto for you tea-lovers.)   You can always find a cup of coffee or yummy herbal tea, free for the taking at HBS.  And all we ask in return is that you consider making a free-will donation to the current cause.  Really, is that too much to ask??

We didn’t think so either.

This month we’re reaching out for …


What can we say?



Utter devastation.

Lives and livelihoods destroyed.

What can you do?

What can we do?

Whom can we trust to be the best stewards of our outreach and help?


We at HBS have done our homework and have chosen to trust …


Our five living former Presidents have come together and are challenging us to give to helping the victims of the hurricanes that have hit and the ones threatening yet to come.

And the bonus? EVERY CENT GIVEN is going to the victims! No administrative overhead. No redirection. Just victim recovery.
