COINS needs your help!
Our social enterprise, The Cookie Bar, is crowdfunding to raise £15,000.
The Cookie Bar isn't an ordinary café... it's a unique social enterprise where 100% of its profits are reinvested back into communities. These profits are split between COINS Foundation charitable projects and with schools in the UK (such as Stepping Stones).
The Cookie Bar also provides valuable work experience for students with a range of disabilities. We currently have two cafes (one in Slough and one in Surrey), but we want to expand and grow, and get ALL over the country... maybe even further...
WE'RE GOING ON TOUR
Via the Cookie Bar, we want to reach as many people as possible - so COINS Global has donated a 1960s London Routemaster bus - and is funding the majority of the refurbishment, which is close to £100,000.
Every donation really helps - whether it's £2, £200 or £2000. The Cookie Bar bus will allow us to attend festivals, fetes and other events. It will also help us to test locations for future social enterprise cafes. We need your help to customise, refurbish and renovate the bus into a mobile pop-up Cookie Bar.
This video explains about the Cookie Bar, the bus, and the social enterprise vision behind them.
REWARDS FOR PLEDGING YOUR SUPPORT INCLUDE
• An official invitation for you and a friend to our Cookie Bar Bus launch party

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
You can help us to bring the Cookie Bar bus to a place near you by making a pledge. We've been as imaginative and generous as we can with our rewards, so please take a look. You can also help us by sharing our Crowdfunder on social media and emailing it to your friends and colleagues. If you've got your own blog or website, please take the time to write about us. We really appreciate your support.
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON'T REACH OUR TARGET?
If we don't raise £15,000 by 5pm Tuesday 17th March, we don't get ANY of the funds that have been pledged! Not a penny! For this reason, we need you to share this page as much as you can!
PRIZE DRAW FOR OUR FIRST 100 BACKERS
Did we mention? We are offering our first 100 backers a chance to win a holiday for two to Birgkarhaus Hotel in Austria (excluding flights).
