OCTOBER - BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH 
One of our dear local artisans, Kristina Madh, owner, small batch coffee roaster, Cloudland Coffee in Georgia is a survivor of breast cancer. Kristina received rehabilitation treatment and counseling from the local non profit Turning Point Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Center. Often an overlooked part of the process of cancer treatment, they helped Kristina get back to health to run her business. She wanted to do something to give back, so she is donating with every sale of her HOPE BLEND. If you love coffee, local and supporting women-owned businesses, this HOPE BLEND coffee will be the ultimate purchase! ORDER HERE or come to the Hug Box shop to get your bag of tasty goodness - shipment coming soon! Photo credit: Cloudland Coffee
