JUST LAST MONTH, Rashel Winn won the Irish Brewers Cup Championship event that was held in Dublin – crowning her as one of the best coffee makers in the country.
Her oncologist words to me last week were straight and sharp, “Eric, it doesn’t look good”.
So he set up a GoFundMe yesterday to raise money for alternative treatments – and it’s already raised over €14,000
Eric said that it was that conversation with the doctor that led him to set the page up – and the support has been overwhelming:
Those words prompted me to take this action. After much thought, knowing we do not have savings or resources to help with obvious travel expenses, alternative treatment expenses, etc..to the degree needed.
Rashel is married to an Irish man, and moved to Dublin several years ago from the US – and seems to have many, many friends in the coffee community here.
3FE on Grand Canal Street announced that they won’t be charging for coffee this Friday when they heard about the fundraising effort
Instead, there’s going to be a big bucket on the counter and you can pay what you like as a donation to Rashel’s cause. If you want to pay a little more than you usually would, thats also completely fine.
The donations page is filled with contributions from Rashel’s friends and family around the world – and it includes support from Dublin coffee shops
The whole community has really come together to support her at this difficult time
Well done to all those involved.
