THE LAUGHING MAN FOUNDATION SUPPORTS COFFEE FARMING COMMUNITIES BY INVESTING IN PROGRAMS THAT CLEAR THE WAY TO HEALTH, GROWTH, AND SUCCESS FOR COFFEE FARMERS AND THEIR FAMILIES.
LAUGHING MAN COFFEE STARTED WITH A PROMISE HUGH JACKMAN MADE TO HIS GOOD FRIEND AND ETHIOPIAN COFFEE FARMER DUKALE AND HIS FAMILY.
The Laughing Man Foundation supports coffee farming communities by investing in programs that clear the way to health, growth, and success for coffee farmers and their families. It started with a promise Hugh Jackman made to his good friend and Ethiopian Coffee farmer Dukale and his family.
Since meeting Dukale, Hugh was inspired to start Laughing Man Coffee and the Laughing Man Foundation to support Dukale and similar farmers around the coffee growing world. What they learned from Dukale was first, that amazing coffees are being grown by small farmers like Dukale and they needed to be shared. Second, coffee farming is a family affair. Everyone is part of the process and family is not just those in your home but the community around you that helps and benefits from your success.
This appreciation for community and family is very much a part of how Laughing Man operate and wanted the foundation to be an extension of that. So they look to programs that are not so much about making more sustainable coffee, although they do, but focus on sustainable individuals, family, and community.
