Here’s How a Small Cafe Can Make a Difference

Postmark Cafe is a tiny coffee shop on a side street in Brooklyn, NY. It’s quiet and unassuming.  Yet it is able to raise a meaningful amount of funds for causes they believed in, with a very simple idea – sending 100% of the tips to charity.   In this case, around $8,000 last year.  According to Hoovers, there are roughly 20,000 coffee shops in the U.S.  That means that even if only a third of coffee shops adopt this philosophy, that would lead to more than $50 million in charitable giving.

Another example of how small acts can make massive impact.
