Caffeinate for a Cause: after losing best friend to domestic violence, Snoqualmie business owner giving back this Mother’s Day

Domestic Violence is a serious problem, one that spans cultural and socioeconomic boundaries. Roughly one in four women will be victims of Domestic Violence in their lifetime. One in four.

Last year on April 23rd in Graham, WA, Brewed Awakening Coffee owner and Snoqualmie resident Maggie Kelley lost her best friend, Jessica Anderson, in a tragic domestic violence/PTSD incident.

On this Mother’s Day – and also Jessica’s birthday – Brewed Awakening (located on Railroad Ave near Meadowbrook Way) will be donating all proceeds to Jessica’s three young children, as well as Domestic Violence and PTSD awareness.

Maggie asks you to consider swinging by for your Mother’s Day coffee to support a local business owner giving back. Brewed Awakening will also be offering drink specials, purple doughnuts from Steve’s Doughnuts, lavender chocolate chip scones from their local baker – just a few of the purple menu items for the day.

If you or anyone you know feels unsafe at home, the National Domestic Violence Hotline is available to help  at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They respond to calls 24/7, every day of the year to offer confidential crisis intervention (www.thehotline.org).
