100th Post = Giveaway!

My favorite coffee mug.

Wow. That was fast.

In order to mark the occasion of my 100th post, I am hosting my first giveaway. Yahoo! Cheers all around! Yea!!

Okay, maybe you are not that excited. But I am. This giveaway is small, but meaningful. I am giving away a bag of 43 Families Coffee.

43 Families Coffee is special. It comes to us via Their-Bucks Coffee, a local company started by regular folks who went on a mission trip to Nicaragua in 2003. I don't think they expected to start a coffee company when they went on that trip. But, they saw a need, and they reacted. They became inspired, and now they are purveyors and wholesalers of sustainable organic coffees. Read more about the El Porvenir Coffee Cooperative, here.

This coffee is good. I drink it every morning. Buying this coffee helps small farmers earn a decent living. You know I have a thing for farmers. Plus, it is sustainable and organic - a new thing for me. Hello! Perfect product. I think it also nicely symbolizes what I'm trying to do here on A Work in Progress: being open to a call, whatever it is, and looking for the good works.

To qualify for this humble but heartfelt giveaway, please leave a comment telling me who you would like to meet for coffee. Your spouse, your mom, your best friend, you first grade teacher. . . anyone!

I will pick a winner via random.org at 8pm on Monday, October 4th. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, October 5th. You can leave as many comments as you like between now and Monday night.

Most importantly, please accept my sincere thank you. A blog without readers does not work. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

P.S. In case you are wondering where you can buy 43 Families Coffee, here is a link, and a list:
  • Piggly Wiggly - various locations
  • Sweet Grass Hardware and Royall Hardware in Mt. Pleasant
  • DwellSmart - awesome website where you can order the coffee and other sustainable goodies
  • Boone Hall Farms
  • Newton Farms

  1. Oh Courtney, I would love to meet YOU for coffee! An hour on our own (no kids), chatting away...and then a refill in travel mugs to take the playground while we watch our kids play together. How does that sound?

  2. I would like to take a coffee break alone. At a crowded Starbucks or just in my house...alone. I normally have coffee in my car on the way to work, or at work, or in a house full of little people that don't really understand that sometimes I need a cup of coffee before I can function :)

    But, I'd also like to have a cup of coffee with my sister. We never get a chance to hang out as just sisters anymore and it would be fun to just enjoy a morning of coffee and sisterly scoop!

  3. I am not a coffee drinker but it would make a great Christmas gift for my sister-in-law. I would like to meet my best friend and college roommate for coffee. She lives in NYC and is too far away for quiet meetings. But I would order hot tea :)

  4. I would love to meet some of my college friends for a mini-reunion around coffee. Maybe the Furman Dance Team...we had some fun times in our purple spandex!

  5. Okay first of all I am so excited to hear about a new coffee. I LOVE coffee and as you know working on the whole organic thing and I love to help the small farmer.

    Second of all, I have tears in my eyes reading my sister's comment. I too would love to have coffee with her. Just her. No children or husbands around so we could talk about whatever we want.

  6. This may sound strange, but I'd love to sit and have coffee with my husband (minus our sweet Madeline). Since he's traveling so much these days, we don't always get to just chat about random things.

  7. Love that mug. So glad to see you aren't getting rid of it! That mug, glasses, pj bottoms...classic CAB.
    Can't wait to see you soon!

  8. Hmm..meeting for coffee...well, you, of course, but also (is it Ok if they are dead?)Eleanor Roosevelt, Mary Camilla Judson, Caroline Gilman, and way too many others. At this point, I'd also like to have coffee with some friends I haven't seen in a long time. Need to check out this coffee...is that what I had this summer?

  9. My sister moved to California last spring. No matter how hard we try, we are not talking often enough. I want a never-ending coffee date with her. Every week. Forever. :) Miss my sis!

  10. I would like a coffee date with myself - and a good book. As a mother of an 8 month old boy, a little time reading (not out loud and without pictures!) is a rare treat.
