We hear a lot about believing in our dreams and throwing all of our passion into achieving them, but what happens when things do not work out the way we planned? Every year thousands of immigrants try to “make it” in Europe. They come from more impoverished countries with little more than the clothes on their backs and their life savings in their pockets. They have heard of many others who have come to Europe, found jobs, and rescued their families from poverty or difficult life situations and they want to do the same for themselves.
In most European countries they can live for three months on a tourist visa, so in that short time they have to start from scratch and hope for the best. Sadly, not all of them find jobs, and for many, they end up living on the streets just so they can save money for food or a business suit in case their do get an interview. You might be surprised by the education some of them have and the life experience they have to offer. What they need is a chance.
That is where Grace Cafe comes in. As a nonprofit cafe, for the homeless, it provides breakfast every day for those in need. But these guys need more than just food in their bellies. They need connections, skills… a helping hand. So, Grace Cafe has started to do more. Through bake sales, flea markets, and now t-shirts, they have been able to raise enough money to hire instructors for the guys- someone to walk alongside them, help them with training, with their resumes, and more.
And do you know what the best part is? It’s working! These guys’ lives are being transformed simply because someone believed in them and stepped in to help! Now Grace Cafe is offering more of these super cool t-shirts (and bags!) and 100% of the profit will help the homeless get more of the training and skills that they need. It feels so good to be able to do something to help!
The shop offers worldwide shipping, so no matter where you live, you can have a cool t-shirt and make a difference, too!
