A Cup of Joe for a Joe (or Jane)!

Take a look at this great program offered by Green Beans Coffee Company.

A CUP OF JOE FOR A JOE gives everyone an opportunity to connect with and express their support for our men and women in uniform through the simple act of buying a cup of premium organic coffee and having it delivered along with their own personalized message of thanks to an anonymous Soldier, Airman, Marine or Sailor serving overseas. For little more than the spare change in your pocket plus a few minutes of your time, you can say thanks and let them know you care. Click here to send a Cup of Joe to a Joe or Jane.

If you are a soldier stationed abroad, you can sign up here to receive a Cup of Joe.

Here are some interesting tidbits about Green Beans Coffee Company:
-Offers the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces organic coffee and tea beverages in an inviting environment where soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines can relax and feel at home.
-Serves military personnel in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, Qatar, Djibouti, Africa and domestically at military bases across North America
-Believes in giving back to its customers that serve in the United States military. A portion of the gross sales generated at all Green Beans locations supports Soldiers' Angels and The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)

If you have a friend or loved one stationed abroad in the military, you may want to consider buying them a reloadable coffee card (Green Beans offers prepaid, reloadable Coffee Cards at select U.S. military bases in the Middle East, Southwest Asia and Africa). When you make your purchase, Green Bean Coffee will add an extra 10% to the card value as their way of saying thanks. Within hours, your friend or loved one will be notified via email to pick up the card at his or her local Green Beans café for use in purchase of coffees, teas, smoothies or snacks. Coffee Cards can also be purchased as an anonymous donation to soldiers.
