Junior Baristas had a great time at WakeUp Call Coffee Freya location
Congratulations to all of our junior baristas who learned all about making Italian Sodas, pulling espresso shots, and even doing a little bit of cookie decorating. 
Please help spread the word that every Friday in September (there are five this year!) When you order one of the Signature Drinks - The Abbey, The London Latte, or the Double Decker Mocha - Wake UP Call will donate $1 to ACCOIN. Like their facebook page and share!
Thanks also to Celebrations Bakery for providing the cookie-decorating experience and Momentum Ink, LLC for donating the awesome T-shirts the kids received. Plus a shout out to City of Spokane Police Department and Spokane Indians Recycle Man for showing up and putting this thing over the top!
Thank You Wake-Up Call Team for such an awesome experience and your generosity! Click here to see facebook photos.

Brain Freeze Creamery has new flavor in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
"Hearts of Gold" was the name Hannah Baumann chose for Brain Freeze's flavor naming contest.  When Sarah asked Hannah how she came up with the name, she said, "I just thought about all of the kids who go through cancer. It's not their choice obviously, but they do it and they fight through it every day and that shows a 'Heart of Gold' to me. Cancer kids are one of a kind."
Yes they are Hannah, and so are you. To read Hannah's personal story, click here.
