here’s what i’m doing with my coffee money this month

I spend a minimum of $45 a week on coffee. Probably substantially more. I just zip through the drive through, tap my credit card on the pay wave machine and away I go. Today I was looking at my credit card statement and it reads like a biography written in coffee transactions. I can tell where I was and what I was doing based on my coffee charges.

There are lots of other things I could be doing with that money.

Like helping a friend fund her cancer treatment by donating to a GoFundMe campaign.

If you can spare even one day’s coffee money, or make a sandwich instead of buying your lunch one day next week, or go without a bottle of wine this weekend, please consider donating. Because fighting cancer is expensive business. Because worrying about money seems kind of trivial when you’re dealing with cancer. And because helping is a way of saying, ‘fuck you, cancer’.

The GoFundMe campaign finishes soon. If you’d like to donate and it’s closed, please let me know by commenting here or emailing me (davis [dot] kate [at] gmail [dot] com).

    I am so with you on this. Fuck cancer. Such a great response..I think there are so many of us that have struggled with how to help…so this has been just one way.
