Serving up flat whites and feel good…
Today is a very exciting day at huggg HQ. We’re announcing a new partnership with a coffee ☕️ brand unlike any other and our very first huggg for good 💛
Get to know Change Please – an amazing social enterprise that provides barista training and jobs for people experiencing homelessness. You may have come across their coffee carts across London and from today, seven Change Please locations will be added to the huggg map (with more to come!)
Each location will accept independent coffee hugggs ☕️ and a very special Change Please coffee huggg – this is our first huggg for good 💛 and we’re really excited about it.
What’s so special about the Change Please coffee?
- A Change Please coffee huggg is £3 to send – both in the huggg app and on our huggg for biz platform
- When a Change Please coffee huggg is redeemed, we pay Change Please £3 too – so that’s full retail price for the coffee plus a charitable donation 🤲
- So, every Change Please huggg you send or redeem will not only taste good – it will do good too
In short, we’ll donate 100% of the money for any Change Please huggg redeemed.
How will it help?
We asked Julian Burnham, Managing Director of Change Please to explain 🗣
“For the first time our customers and supporters can give friends and family a huggg that will not only make someone’s day but also change lives. Since launching in 2015 we have used the profits from Change Please coffee to help over 175 people with support or training, and 90 people experiencing homelessness with employment as baristas. Thanks to our partnership with huggg we hope that even more people will make the choice to buy Change Please coffee and support our mission to reduce homelessness, one coffee at a time.”

Why have we decided to do this?
This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time. We really care about making the world a brighter place, one small gesture at a time. Partnering with a coffee brand like Change Please to launch our first huggg for good 💛 made perfect sense.
We’re really excited about this partnership and can’t wait to hear about your Change Please huggg stories. ‘Tis the season for giving but this giving initiative is here to stay. – Caragh Jones, Senior Partnerships Manager at Huggg
