YOU’RE HELPING US TO GIVE BACK


When you buy any of our red espresso products, you are helping us to make a difference. Here are some of the ways we give back.

 

WE HELP IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER

Every month we donate funds to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) for research and community projects that help those affected by the disease. We also host an annual Cuppa For CANSA tea party with our partners, the 12 Apostles Hotel in Cape Town, to help raise funds and awareness for the disease during breast cancer month, October. red espresso was selected by CANSA, an NGO committed to fighting cancer, as a “smart choice” for consumers due to its multiple health benefits that have been linked to cancer prevention. As a corporate social partner of CANSA, we donate a portion of our income to the organization every year. These funds help CANSA with their research and upliftment initiatives. “red espresso, a world first and proudly South African product that innovated rooibos tea into an espresso, has been awarded the CANSA Seal of Recognition in recognition of its unique health properties. In addition to being naturally caffeine-free, red espresso concentrates the antioxidants and health benefits of rooibos tea, to a level where one serving (60ml red espresso) equals 10 times the antioxidants of traditionally-brewed rooibos and five times the antioxidants of green tea. Rooibos tea elevates blood glutathione levels (the master antioxidant in the body) which counteracts the process of ageing, the decline of the immune system, heart disease and the risk of cancer.” Cancer Association of South Africa, CANSA.

WE HELP MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE

Every year we sponsor the Reach for a Dream Foundation to fulfil the dreams of children faced with life-threatening illnesses. Reach for a Dream fulfils in excess of 1,200 dreams every year and through their hospital initiatives, they reach a further 30,000 South Africa children. Their message is one of hope and inspiration. By creating happy moments in the lives of severely ill children they show that tomorrow is worth fighting for.

 

 

 

WE HELP DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITIES

We are a proud sponsor of the Ground UP Project which trains previously disadvantaged people to become professional baristas and finds work for them in the coffee and hospitality industries. More than just a cup of coffee, this is a cup of hope. By partnering with the unemployed and training them to be professional baristas, we change lives from the Ground UP. red espresso is a proud sponsor of the Ground UP Project (a Learn to Earn Initiative) which, in its first year of operating helped 45 previously-unemployed people to embark on careers in the coffee and hospitality industries.
