 event by pre-paying for 1000 morning coffees in small towns across the province.


When: Wednesday January 10, 2018 from open. While supplies last


Where:   At the following cafes across Ontario:

                       Alexandria: The Quirky Carrot - 1 Main Street South

                       Barrie: Bean Counter – 49 Dunlop Street

                        Belleville: Brake Room – 34 Dundas Street East

                        Lindsay: Boiling Over’s Coffee Vault – 148 Kent Street West

10 independent coffee shops across Ontario will be giving away 100 free coffees (or teas) to the first patrons through the doors. The complimentary caffeine hit comes with just one simple request: to pay the kindness forward. Each person to receive a free beverage is asked to add to the coffee kindness tab to create a ripple effect, allowing even more people in the community to enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee.


Additional Notes:

The Commonwell will also make a major announcement about funding for The Commonwell's C.A.R.E. (Create a Ripple Effect) Program and how local residents can help them decide which charities to support in 2018. Cameras welcome at all locations.
