Hope you are all having a happy new year!
It has been a few weeks since our last blog post, so we are really excited about this one! As most of you know, we are not yet to a point in our business where we can open our own coffee shop, but we are trusting in God's perfect timing. In the meantime, we have prayerfully decided the organization we will be donating a portion of our proceeds to.
We are excited to announce and very blessed to be able to donate 10% of our proceeds to Old Skool Cafe, a high end youth-run supper club in San Francisco, California! After sharing our vision with a lot of friends and family, our great friend Greg Swanson advised us to look into Old Skool Cafe in San Francisco. Greg heard about the cafe when going on "Westmont in San Francisco", which is an abroad program offered by Westmont College. Watch the video here! It outlines the vision of Old Skool Cafe under the leadership of fellow Westmont alum Teresa Goines. For those that are wondering, "The Westmont Mafia" is a real thing and we are incredibly blessed to be part of such a big supportive network of Westmont alumni.
We are very excited to continue donating 10% of our profit to Old Skool because their vision is so similar to ours and they are changing the lives of the youth through lasting relationship. It truly reflects the heart of Jesus. We are prayerful that we will also be able to live out this mission in Carpinteria, CA (God willing).
So to recap, as of today, 10% of every purchase you make from Penny Wagon will go to Old Skool Cafe! If this is a real passion of yours, please consider donating directly to Old Skool Cafe by clicking HERE.

P.S. As Kat and I were making our first donation to Old Skool we couldn't help but think, "Wow, how cool is it that we get to do something we love, and give away money at the same time!?"
Thank you so much for all of your support thus far, making all of this possible. We feel truly blessed by all the love!
