Best Friends Start Coffee Business To Support Urban Youth

posted by Dawn Dai - 

Growing up in low-income households in Gary, Indiana, best friends Pernell and Rod decided to start their own coffee and tea business, BLK & Bold, to help underprivileged youth. Despite their surrounding circumstances, both went on to be college grads and now business partners.

Their company, BLK & Bold “was born to assist current urban youth in similar circumstances defy their odds in pursuit of living their best lives.” Standing by their motto, #BeBoldBeYou these brothers are a living example as to what it means to be my brother's keeper. The two childhood friends have decided to donate a percentage of their proceeds to youth growing up in low socioeconomic surroundings.

According to blkandbold.com,

"5% OF PROFITS FROM YOUR PURCHASE IS DIRECTLY CONTRIBUTED TO CAUSES THAT SUPPORT DISADVANTAGED URBAN YOUTH!"

Blk & Bold produces organic coffee and organic loose-leaf teas. They also ship their products nationally. To learn more or support these brothers, visit www.blkandbold.com

After all, they are "creating quality beverages affecting the culture."
