Homeless doesn’t mean helpless. There is hope. At Change Please, we are using coffee to change lives.
Founded in 2015, Change Please is an award-winning social enterprise which aims to end homelessness through selling great tasting coffee.
We use 100% of our profits and donations to help women and children experiencing homelessnes, by training them to become baristas - giving them the support, job prospects and self belief they need to thrive.
"If we can just get a small proportion of coffee drinkers to simply change where they buy their coffee, we could really change the world.” Cemal Ezel, CEO and Founder of Change Please.
Thank you for your support!
