Coffee for change
Feel good coffee that helps make a difference
Coffee for Change is a new campaign we have launched this December. The campaign has been developed in conjunction with CCA member Silvio Verrocchi. and support from his employer, Coffex Coffee Roaster.
Coffee for Change café partners are getting behind this campaign and asking their customers to make a small donation when they purchase their favourite beverage during this festive month.
With the help of other CCA members we hope to grow this initiative into a nationally recognised campaign in 2019.
We are on the lookout for supportive café owners to partner with us and support Coffee for Change and help improve awareness and raise funds to support people living with IBD.
We’d love to hear from you.
Nominate your favourite coffee haunt so that we can grow this campaign in 2019. For further information about Coffee for Change and how you can help please contact Stacey James at firstname.lastname@example.org
Christmas Appeal 2018
My name is Dani and I am a YouTube video blogger. The people who view my videos only see me at my best, but there is another side to my life that I would like to share with you.
I am 22 now and have been living with Crohn’s for 9 years. I was experiencing diarrhoea and blood in the toilet and no one could tell me why, not even the doctors. Eventually, after being in and out of hospital, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. From then on I entered a strange world of bright white and flashing lights. For 2 months in hospital I was forbidden from eating or drinking and was fed through a tube.
“I had heard of this disease before but learning that it was incurable and that I would have to take medication for the rest of my life was devastating.”
The anxiety that I have experienced as a result of having Crohn’s has, in many ways, been worse than any of the symptoms. I dropped out of high school because I missed too many classes and assignments because of being in and out of the hospitals. My family’s problems with IBD didn’t end with my diagnosis. My younger sister, Ashleigh, was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when she was 17 years old.
As someone impacted by IBD yourself, either by being a patient or having a loved one diagnosed, you understand first-hand the life-changing affect this debilitating disease has on our lives.
As we enter the festive season, I ask that you help the IBD community by making a donation to Crohn’s & Colitis Australia. They have been a part our family for some time now, providing us with much needed support and information on the disease through their support programs and services.

Fundraising website mycause offers our members the chance to share the love on their birthday, by pledging their special day to Crohn’s & Colitis Australia.
Instead of getting a gift you may not really need, you can ask friends and family to make a donation to CCA, and help us make life more liveable for those with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
With an easy online process to set up your pledge page, you can share information about IBD, the work that CCA does, and why you would like your friends and family to pledge.
After all, there is no better birthday gift than helping to support the 80,000 Australians living with Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis every day.
