This week marks the second anniversary of our partnership with the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand and we’re thrilled to be celebrating Mental Health Awareness Week at the same time.
We often say great things happen over a cup of coffee. Sometimes it’s about connecting with a friend or colleague; creating space for conversations about mental health and wellbeing. That’s why it felt right to partner with the Mental Health Foundation. We’re proud to support the great work they do, whether it be fundraising, encouraging conversations about mental health, or, of course, taking care of their office coffee.
Coffee brings people together, that’s one of our favourite things about it — it’s social. The simple act of asking someone to catch up and kōrero over a coffee could be all it takes to help them. Coffee is ritualistic and can help form the basis of routine check-ins with the people in our lives.
Every Mental Health Awareness Week has a theme, this year’s isReconnect,with the people and places that lift you up, hei pikinga waiora, and we couldn’t think of a better way to reconnect with someone or something than over a cuppa. So, today we’re launching a new coffee —Ethiopia, Buku Sayisa — which will see 100% of the proceeds donated to the Mental Health Foundation.
Each year, the Mental Health Foundation launches a daily challenge during Mental Health Awareness Week. We’re encouraging our team to get involved and we would love to see you jump on board, too. Keep an eye onour Instagram stories to see what each day entails.
If your coffee supplies are ample and it’s not quite time for a top-up but you’d like to make a donation, you can do so directly through our Coffee Supreme page here.
