Our with AlexStrong began when we were introduced to Chris by one of our brand ambassadors. Emails and Direct Messages on Instagram were exchanged. Chris and I began dreaming big during our very first phone conversation and our visions for where we wanted our businesses to go aligned in perfect fashion. Though we have big plans/dreams for the future, we fully understand that we must start small. But we also believe that we can make a massive impact in people's lives with small acts of kindness. From the very start, 1440 has always been about connecting people with fresh roasted, specialty coffee and Chris and Erin would be able to get our coffee to people who truly deserve it. This would prove to be a tougher task than originally planned due to hospital regulations and the added stress of a pandemic. Together we have brainstormed ways to get amazing coffee into the hands of patient families, hospital staff, and the HemeOnc clinic. We are truly thankful for the partnership between our businesses but even more thankful for the friendship created.
Together we have accomplished so much in so little time. We send AlexStrong coffee each month based on our sales, and they distribute to patients, hospital staff, and donors. Chris has also taken it upon himself to brew massive amounts of coffee at home and then hand deliver it to the HemeOnc Clinic and to the floor of the hospital where our heroes go for their in-patient stays. Our newest endeavor includes building New Patient Care Packages that include our coffee, an Aeropress Go, water kettle, blankets, towels, and fun items for our heroes. We have plans to include more items in time.

We recently partnered with Chris and Julia LaBeause from #StoryTime Project after learning about their mission through a mutual friend. #StoryTime Project was created to be proactive in preventing veteran suicide by establishing a set date and time to reach out to active servicemen/women and veterans. The idea is to let them know that they are not alone and that it's okay to not be okay.
It didn't take long for us to decide that we wanted to help. So we reached out and created a signature roast for #STP and have pledge to donate $2 with every bag we sell. The donations will go to sponsoring veterans who want to participate in athletic competitions (Crossfit, weightlifting, etc) and hunting trips which promote healthy outlets for vets.
We are proud to be part of such a great mission and we hope that you will join us in supporting Chris and Julia and the many vets they work with. Grab a bag of the #StoryTime Roast today and enjoy!
