Superfood Called Coffee

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016


Is is possible that our common household drink could be considered a superfood?. If independent studies are correct then yes, coffee offers many health benefits to us all, some of which are lower heart disease, lower the risk of type 2 diabetes and it provides needed daily antioxidants.

Coffee has more antioxidant activity than green tea and cocoa, which are two antioxidant superstars. Over 1,000 antioxidants are found in coffee. One of which, Chlorogenic acid, an important antioxidant found almost exclusively in coffee, is also thought to help prevent cardiovascular disease.

There is some evidence that coffee may support heart health by protecting against arterial damage caused by inflammation. This independent study was produced by looking at 37,000 people over a 13 year period. They found that moderate coffee drinkers (2 – 4 cups per day) had the most benefit to protecting your heart than light, heavy or non drinkers.

Back to our antioxidants, another component of coffee known as caffeic acid has been found to be particularly significant in reducing the toxic accumulation of abnormal protein deposits (amyloid fibrils) found in people with type 2 diabetes. This acid, helps the body use insulin more efficiently, which regulates the body’s blood sugar. When the body’s blood sugar is at bay, then the body can keep inflammation down, as well as, preventing tissue damage.

When it comes being healthy remember, a good diet, plenty of exercise, and two cups of coffee by Java Joes’ and Fundraising Junction go a long way.

New Jersey Cheerleading Group Finds A Way To Maximize Fundraising Profit

Thursday, October 6th, 2016



Having a successful fundraiser does not always come down to the products. Although the type and quality of products are important, it takes a team of people dedicated to your organization, with enthusiasm and tenacity to meet the goals needed to move the organization forward.

How you set up a fundraiser is as important as what you’re selling. We took a little advice from a high school cheerleading group in New Jersey to find out what they did to maximize the return on their coffee fundraiser.

What they found was door-to-door sales don’t do as well as selling product at games. If people sample the product, which of course they pay for, they’re more willing to buy a bag or two of coffee on the spot.

Since they have to raise funds for their activities throughout the year, they decided to choose products that are easy to sell on cold fall nights. Coffee just happens to be a perfect product for their type of fundraising. They sell the coffee and ask each customer what they think of the quality. If the customer likes the coffee, they then suggest if they would like to purchase a bag or two of coffee to help with fundraising for their activities. After collecting the customers information they then submit the entire evening’s worth of orders to Fundraising Junction. Since Fundraising Junction ships quickly, the next football game the customers orders are already at the game for them to pick up. Customers love the fact that they can order coffee by the bag and have it ready the following week or even have it shipped to their house.
