I just saw this in the Seattle Times, and wanted to be sure to give some well-deserved recognition to all of our friends at DaVinci Gourmet, the Seattle-based syrup manufacturer and part of Kerry Foodservices. Since 2006, DaVinci has raised and donated more than a half-million dollars to the nonprofit Coffee Kids. DaVinci’s efforts have made it the largest donor to the nonproft.

Coffee Kids works to improve the lives of coffee farmers and their families. They do awesome work providing programs in health awareness, education and micro-credit loans among other things.

Nice job, DaVinci!
