Special Draw 5 years of Giving Back


Happy Birthday!
5 years of Giving Back

We wanted to do something really special to celebrate the 5th birthday of our monthly Giving Back programme

On 23 December 2019, we made a special draw to give away $2500 to a local cause chosen by one of our customers. We also gave $500 cash to the winning customer.

Damian from the Breeze kindly made the draw.

Our winning customer was Emma Moore!

Emma nominated the Otago Community Hospice for the $2500 donation. 

Emma and Anusha with CEO Ginny Green and some of the amazing team from the Otago Community Hospice.

Then something completely unexpected but really cool happened...

Laura from Uyo.nz got in touch to say she was inspired by the draw and that UYO cafe guide would donate another $2500 to a second charity!

So, into the Swift glovebox again to draw the winner number two:

The Orokonui Eco Sanctuary nominated by Phoebe Adams!

Thanks Laura! And thanks UYO! By the way, UYO stands for Use Your Own. It's a not-for-profit, responsible-cafe finder, a tool to help customers, cafes and communities to break away from unnecessary single use cups - check out their guide for some great local cafe finds.

Thanks too, to our wonderful customers who, every month, nominate causes in our community to receive a $250 donation from our Giving Back draw.
