Coffee Beyond the Borders

A project by Kayla Smith




Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder

them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these”

        -Matthew 19:14

 

Have you ever been at a restaurant and seen a parent sitting happily as his or her toddlers eat their food neatly and keep to themselves? Yeah, neither have I. Kids get bored and messy, but that is okay!

 

My dream is called Coffee Beyond the Borders (CBB). CBB will be a Christian centered coffee shop that is beyond kid friendly. The coffee shop will feature a large play area for kids to play and a lounge environment for parents to relax with a deliciously brewed coffee. Both parent and child will enjoy themselves. But wait! There’s more! CBB is not only family-oriented, it’s also health-conscious and budget-friendly! We will offer a variety of healthy menu choices along with a large selection of simple yet deliciously crafted drinks at reasonable prices. The CBB concept is centered around God, faith, family, and health.

 

For years, I have wanted to own a coffee shop, but finances have kept me from that. I found myself trying to settle with the “second best” option many times, but my heart keeps reeling me back to its true desire. This time, it feels different – it feels right. I am ready to take the leap of faith to start my business, and I want it more than ever! But I still do not have all of the finances, so I am asking the community for help.

 

Crowdfunding is something that I have considered for a while now. I was unsure at first – would people like my concept? Would they support it? What if it doesn’t work out, again? So what’s different this time? I have confidence. More importantly, I have faith! Faith that something bigger is happening here. So I lay it all down and let the impossible become possible. I remove all borders that held me back before. Please join me in this process and consider helping me reach the goal. Check out the many ways you can help as well as all of the great rewards!

 

 

Let each of you look not only to his own interests,

but also to the interests of others.

-Philippians 2:4

 

 

Ways to help:

Prayer! - Please pray for us and this journey. Let this all be for the glory of God and for him to lead us where we are meant to be. 

Financially - The financial needs can be met by using this site to donate via credit/debit cards or by check or cash in person if you are local. Our first goal is $10,000. This will get us open and ready for business. Our second goal is $15,000 for a more expanded children's area including a separate area for older children. Our stretch goal is $20,000 which will give us quality items for the children and parents as well as some working funds to give a little cushion for our first months. 

Donations - Items that are needed are counter tops, chairs, tables, electrician, plumber, artists, and a few equipment items. If you feel that you could help in this area, please message us to find out what items are still needed.

    We are unsure what all will be needed in this area, but at the least we will need a licensed electrician to sign off before we can open. If you feel this is an area you could help, please message us! Thank you!
