Healthy Haiti Coffee results

Dean Cycon just sent the following message to customers:
A big THANK YOU to everyone for participating in our Haiti Earthquake Relief effort.  For the month of February, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Healthy Haiti coffee was donated to Partners In Health.  The grand total was $15,974.35, YEOW!  Way to rise to Haiti's Aid Dean's Beans Drinkers!

Still want to support the tremendous efforts that will be needed to rebuild Haiti?  Going forward $3.00 from the sale of Healthy Haiti Coffee will be donated to Partners in Health.

Thanks so much for your support!
James H-B adds: Because of the extreme deforestation and other difficulties in Haiti even before the earthquake, Deans Beans has not been able to secure a source of fair-trade, organic coffee from the country. Healthy Haiti is a blend (quite an excellent one) from elsewhere in the Americas, the sale of which has been supporting PIH. In the longer term, the development of fair-trade coffee growing in Haiti could be an excellent model of "trade not aid" in the support of the country's on-going development. Stay tuned!
