Cosi Coffee Challenge #2: Do something good

tell us how you’re making the world a better place using #cosicoffeechallenge on social media and enter for a chance to win free coffee for a year!

when you purchase any size cosi® iced or hot coffee, you’re already making the world a better place: ten cents of every cup purchased at participating locations is donated to your local food bank. but we want to go even further.

here are some small things we can do easily on our own:

  • walk instead of drive
  • donate the unwanted items you find while spring cleaning
  • buy local produce and goods when you can
  • support a charity that means something to you
  • start a garden, even if it’s a small one
  • recycle at home and work
  • do business with companies with a strong moral compass
  • become a blood donor
  • offer to do yard work for an elderly neighbor
  • practice random acts of kindness


everything is more fun with friends. here are some ideas that perfect for groups:

  • host a yard sale and donate the proceeds to your favorite charity
  • organize a beach cleanup day
  • enter a 5k for a cause
  • host a benefit night at your local cosi®- we’ll donate 25% of sales to an organization of your choice
  • start a community garden
  • collect supplies for people who have been in a fire or natural disaster
  • conduct a neighborhood drive to collect furniture and household supplies to donate
  • organize a carpool with your coworkers
  • make bag lunches, assembly-line style, with a group of friends and hand out meals to the homeless
  • volunteer at your local food bank with a group of friends


we're not just asking you to make the world a better place, we're joining you too! be on the look out for cosi® partners volunteering in your community. we'll post pictures of our volunteers on social media throughout the challenge.
