Ian Happ, Connect Roasters partner to give back to charity
Ian Happ used his platform and his love of coffee to give back at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic last year. Now, he’s expanding on that passion and generosity to help out even more.
Happ and Connect Roasters have partnered to start a coffee subscription service with proceeds from the subscription service being donated to organizations such as the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Save the Children, a non-profit that works to improve the lives of children in the U.S. and across the world. Happ partnered with Connect Roasters last year to release “Quarantine Coffee”, a specialty blend of coffee where proceeds from sales would benefit healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The subscription service will have three levels: one coffee bag for $15 a month, 2 bags for $25 a month and a 5-pound bag for $50 a month. For each pound of coffee that is sold, $1 will be donated to one of the organizations.
“Our goal is to get to 1,000 subscribers donating to our charitable causes each month,” Happ said.
In addition to the bags of coffee, members will receive exclusive perks, including free shipping and exclusive, once-a-month bundle drops where members can purchase gameused and autographed memorabilia. Additionally, for each home run that Happ hits throughout the season, members will receive 5 “Dinger Dollars”, which can be used towards anything on the Connect Roasters website.
