At T4LYF it is very important for us to give back to the community. Our whole mantra is focused around improving peoples lives, not only with our tea. So each month we choose a charitea to give a percentage of our profits too.
Currently the charitea we are supporting is called The Orange Pigeon. This charitea is based in Melbourne Australia and is the only charitea of its kind in the country that grants wishes to adults with terminal illnesses. They do a fantastic job on the small donations that they receive.
To find our more go to http://www.orangepigeon.org.au/.
One of the recipients of The Orange Pigeon is a friend of ours, Mr. Craig Coombes.
Craig is battling throat cancer having been diagnosed on the 14th of September 2012 and was told by doctors he wouldn’t see past August 2013.
Yet, in the only way he knows how, he said “in your face cancer!” and is still here with us, entertaining us on a daily basis with his love of comedy and cheeky ways.
Cheeky, in every sense of the word, as he started a community on facebook called ‘NakedTuesday’. Craigs way of telling cancer to get stuffed is to get naked whenever he can and post (tasteful!) photos every Tuesday. It seems his followers thought it was a good idea, as they started sending in tasteful naked photos of themselves and now the site has over 6,000 followers!
Craigs moto is to “make the rest of your life the BEST of your life’ and is spreading this to the world while along the way making an ever growing group of supporting friends.
The world is truly blessed by having people like Craig in it, and by supporting the great work that The Orange Pigeon does, they can continue to bring a little joy into the lives of those who are battling an illness.
Of all of our blends of tea, we feel that the “Tea For Life” blend epitomizes Craigs love of life and attitude of wanting to live life to the full! So in Craigs honour, and with his blessing, we would like to donate a further 10% from all sales of our blend of “Tea For Life” to The Orange Pigeon.
