Buy a mug, get free coffee for a week! Benefits East Austin elementary school

Do you buy coffee at any of these fine Austin establishments?

Texenza Coffee (10 locations)
JP’s Java
Caffe Medici
Hot Mama’s
Bossa Nova
Genuine Joe
Flipnotics (2 locations)
Little City

If so, consider buying a super-cute, holiday-themed mug created by a student from UT’s Elementary School in East Austin.

Coffee for Education benefits The University of Texas Elementary School’s nurse’s office and medical supplies.  The fundraiser brings a select group of independent Austin coffee houses together to raise money for The UT Elementary School in East Austin.  UTES provides exemplary education to a mostly low income and minority population of children.  The school is distinguished by its innovative teaching methods, giving these children an outstanding education.

To support these children and the school, just stop into a participating local coffee house to pick up your Coffee for Education mug.  The fun holiday art on the mug was drawn by one of UTES’s very own students.  Each mug also has a handmade gift tag that is personally signed by a student – SO cute and a GREAT gift idea!

Mugs will be available for purchase December 4th through Christmas and are only $15 each.  Early buyers will also receive a FREE cup of coffee DAILY for one week when they bring their mug into one of the participating coffee houses during the week of December 7-13th.

100% of the purchase price will benefit UTES.  In the spirit of Christmas, this is truly a gift that gives.

  1. I just wanted to put in an update and let everyone know that our fundraiser was a success! We made $2600, which will be enough for UT Elementary School to purchase a defibrillator. Thank you to everyone that donated money or purchased a mug. Special thanks to the coffee houses – the managers, owners, and baristas that participated and made this a success! Happy New Year!
