main dans la main

Main dans la Main was created during summer 2020. The mission of this initiative is to get involved in our community and support causes that are close to our hearts by creating a unique coffee bag. Three actors are involved in this initiative – us, an artist and an organization. We create a unique coffee blend; a label is created by the artist and $0.50 is donated to the chosen organization for all the coffee bags sold.

Meky Ottawa

Foyer pour femmes autochtones de Montréal

For the first Main dans la Main coffee bag, we collaborated with Meky Ottawa, an Atikamekw artist. We asked Meky to create the illustration that would be on the coffee bag and to choose the organization that would receive the money raised by the sale of the coffee. Meky Ottawa chose the Iskweu project ? an initiative of the Native Women's Shelter of Montreal. “The Project wishes to respond to an immediate need for assistance expressed by families and loved ones in the case of a native woman or girl (trans, two-spirited) who disappears”.

Bon Matin

The Dillon Ojo Lifeline Foundation

For the second coffee, we chose the Dillon Ojo Lifeline Foundation. We created Bon Matin, ZAB's first dark roast ? the result of a mix of three origins: Brazil (Joyeux Roger), Peru (Huadquiña) and Colombia (La Esperanza). This time, the Bon Matin label was produced in-house by our graphic designer Marc-Étienne. 

 

The Dillon Ojo Lifeline Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Elaine Charles and Francis Ojo in memory of Dilon Ojo, their son who died in 2018 at the age of 23. Dillon had an outstanding career in snowboarding and the foundation was created to provide to less fortunate young people an access to sports programs, camps and other physical activities. Giving young people the opportunity to move, play and be outside is something important for us.
