Coffee + Action

Act Here. Love Now: The Change Begins With You follows the journey of 11 student photographers who had a vision to change the world. They traveled through 36 countries documenting the lives of those they met. As they took photos and heard stories, they were overwhelmed with the needs that confronted them along the way. But as the days wore on, the girls realized they could make a difference, every day, with simple acts of genuine love. This book is a culmination of their stories, photos, and practical ways to impact your own community, city, and world.

 One way that you can get directly involved in helping to spread their message is to buy some great coffee and help them raise funds!  The Act Here. Love Now. team has partnered with 35 North Coffee Co., a well-reviewed coffee roaster that fairly-purchases from growers and roasts it the same day you order it! You can go straight to the Act Here. Love Now. page on their Web site to order your coffee [whole bean or ground]. And if you're interested in partnering to sell in your church or workplace, contact about purchasing wholesale.


Love your enemies.
