On Friday, Novermber 29th, hundreds of people across Toronto will be taking part in Double Double Day, to mark World AIDS Day (on Dec 1st) and raise funds for Step By Step Africa.
Instead of buying your morning coffee or tea at your local coffee shop, grab one at work and donate the money you would have spent on your coffee to a great cause.
Want to support Double Double Day but your place of work isn't taking part? You can donate online by clicking the 'Donate' button to the right.
On January 18th 2012, Step by Step Africa launched our pilot of the
"double-double day." We asked one Toronto based Communications Company, for one day, to get their morning beverage at work, and donate what they would have spent on their coffee or tea to Step by Step Africa.
In just one morning’s coffee break, we raised almost $200! Imagine how much of a difference we could make if we launched this initiative across Canada.
Over the next few months, Step by Step Africa will be rolling out this initiative across Canadian based companies. We invite friends like you to launch this simple initiative at your office on behalf of Step by Step Africa. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
