If you’re in Bangkok and love coffee, you don’t want to miss HelpLive coffee kiosk!

Started by a couple personal friends of mine, HelpLive is an organization that aims to help and provide for needy children. Their main project is supporting an orphanage located in northwestern Thailand on the border of Myanmar.

So where does coffee come into play?

In order to raise money and be able to provide shelter and necessities for needy children, HelpLive decided to open a coffee kiosk in the Silom business area of town. Now, there is not just a single coffee kiosk, but three different locations in Bangkok.

Their menu is simple, consisting of just a number of different coffee choices like espresso, americano, cappuccino, latte, or mocha, in either hot or iced form.

The last time I stopped by, I ordered an iced latte, which was nothing short of marvelous, creamy, and strong.

If coffee isn’t your thing, you’ll also find a chocolatey cup of iced cocoa or a green tea latte on the menu.

But what’s better than their coffee?

Despite their coffee being excellent, for every cup of coffee you buy at HelpLive coffee shop in Bangkok, you’ll also be buying a meal for a child in need.

Did you get that? 

Now that’s what I call WIN-WIN. For just 45 Thai Baht you get a wonderful cup of coffee and the money you spend will also purchase a meal for a child.

Don't forget your card either!

And if you’re in Bangkok for a while, be sure to grab one of the HelpLive frequent coffee cards where you’ll get your 10th cup for free – and even your free cup will buy a meal!

    What an amazing and selfless idea. I’ll be sharing this on my facebook and twitter, I have quite a lot of friends/family that live & travel to Thailand and what a great way to help give to those that need it.

    A great post and very touching Mark, well done for posting and even more so for your friends.
