Non-profits have played a major role in my life.
In high school students like myself were required to do 40 hours of volunteer work.
The requirement is still ongoing and for more than a decade later I still volunteer.
However, even from my limited experience I can see the challenges for non-profits.
Fundraising has become more competitive and now with so many worthly causes vying for limited funds.
So when I came across Studio 89, a cafe in Mississauga, I was impressed with I read.
On their website they state “We try to be all sorts of awesome by providing fair trade, organic, bird-friendly and rain forest certifiedcoffee, and by providing other ethical and yummy treats and products! …The money you spend at Studio.89 goes towards the functioning of our community hub.”
Its worth taking the time to review their website you never know what you will learn.
