1 lb. bag of whole beans

Humanitarians Shannon Galpin @sgalpin74 and Dan Horndasch @dan_cx are among the numerous Americans working tirelessly around the clock to get Afghans and allies out of Afghanistan as the country has fallen into Taliban hands. They've focused on getting out the world-famous 'Right To Ride' Afghan women cyclists. Their lives are in danger if they stay.
In addition to donating, we reached out to Shannon and Dan (they're bike peeps like us) and asked if we could do a fundraising coffee supporting efforts to get these Afghan women out of the country AND on their way as they start new lives once they are out.
All profits from the sale of "Get Them Out Roast" coffee go to the "Support Evacuation and Resettlement of Afghan Cyclists Fundly Campaign."

Right now Shannon and Dan are focused 24 hours a day on getting these stranded women out of Afghanistan. These women can't safely stay. The situation is deteriorating before our eyes. These beans provide another way to help. As they've written on the fundraising page:
"For the past decade, Afghan women cyclists have become a 'right to ride' movement. These women have challenged gender barriers, inspired the world, and risked their lives to ride a bike. Now they need your help!
The women that founded and grew the 'right to ride' cycling movement in Afghanistan are among the most prominent athletes in Afghanistan over the past decade.
They were nominated as National Geographic Adventurers of the Year. They were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. They have been celebrated and feted by the international community but they have not been supported.
Now they are in hiding, burning their clothing, and scared of reprisals by the Taliban. They are literally burning their future as are many women across Afghanistan who are burning diplomas and other 'incriminating' items.
Here's how we support the women we have seen in documentaries, in newspapers and magazines, and in museums.
We get them out.
These women are on evacuation lists but we need to fund their evacuation and their repatriation costs, mental health counseling, and of course, once they have a community, get them BIKES. They never wanted this.
We have a moral obligation to support them and help them rebuild their lives."
Here's a resource list to help Afghan Refugees.
If you want to know more about the historical context of this situation and Grimpeur Bros. Specialty Coffee's POV, I recommend you take a few minutes and watch John Oliver's Afghanistan commentary.
We have a moral obligation to get out ALL Afghans who want to leave and set them up in America for new lives.
If we don't, it will be a stain on the United States of America and every one of us.
