Shoppers Find New Perks at Coffee Bar: Give Back as Part of Daily Grind Reusable cup sleeves to help employ mothers and support school for disabled children in Kenya

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For 99 cents, shoppers can help fund a special needs school in Kenya, reduce waste and preserve their morning java – all at once – when they purchase a L.I.F.E. Jacket reusable cup sleeve, with any Allegro Coffee beverage at Whole Foods Market.  

To view the multimedia assets associated with this release, please click: http://multivu.prnewswire.com/mnr/wholefoods/49710/
 
Every cent from each handmade canvas sleeve sold goes to nonprofit Comfort the Children International (CTC) to empower Kenyan mothers to earn a living and send their children to school. L.I.F.E. stands for Livelihood, Invest, Future, Empower - which is what the nonprofit aims to provide and do for the poor in rural Kenya.
 

In 2008, CTC founded the first school for disabled children in the Kenyan Rift Valley, where students have since learned to walk, read, write and enjoy a healthy environment with other children. CTC also added a tailoring room onto the school where the nonprofit is teaching mothers how to sew the L.I.F.E. Jackets and paying fair wages for their work. Through the program, mothers are regaining hope and self-respect, lifting their families out of poverty and – for the first time ever – sending their children to school.
 
Supporting CTC's efforts isn't the first partnership of its kind for Allegro. It has long been an active participant in the global community. In addition to ensuring responsible sourcing and equitable pricing, Allegro donates five percent of profits to communities where it buys its coffee and tea.
Learn more about CTC at ctcinternational.org. For more about Allegro visit allegrocoffee.com.
 
Quotes:
"Buying a L.I.F.E. Jacket saves so much more than your coffee. Many Kenyans believe that giving birth to a child with disabilities is punishment for committing a crime, and grounds to shun a mother and child from the community. Jobs become scarce and there's no place for their children in public school. Through L.I.F.E. Jacket sales, CTC is putting an end to that vicious cycle." 
- Zane Wilemon, founder and executive director of Comfort the Children International.
 
"One small, split-second choice can bring a lifetime of change for a mother and her child across the globe. We're proud to offer shoppers this easy way to give back as they go about their daily routine." 
- Jeff Teter, president and general manager of Allegro Coffee Company

GM to battle VW in China with $12 billion investment and new plants 12/31/1969 07:12pm EST
U.S. car giant General Motors Corp (GM) (GM) plans to invest $12 billion in China from 2014 to 2017 and build more plants next year as it competes with aggressive rivals in the world's largest auto market. GM expects its China sales to expand 8-10 percent this year, in line with the overall growth of the Chinese market, where foreign firms, such as Volkswagen AG (VOW3.DE), and domestic players like SAIC Motor Corp vie for more market share. In total we are investing $12 billion between 2014 and 2017," Matt Tsien, president of GM China, said at the Auto China show in Beijing. GM plans to build five more plants in China next year, as part of its efforts to ramp up manufacturing capacity there by 65 percent by 2020, executives said on Sunday.

Pipeline delay gives boost to Obama's political base 12/31/1969 07:12pm EST
The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama's liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project's effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada's oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012, to sit out the November 4 congressional elections. The State Department's announcement on Friday that it would give government agencies more time to study the project was seen by strategists from both parties as a move to prevent that and boost Obama in the eyes of his supporters.
