Why Childhood Cancer and why Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer?

Since 2013, Infinite Love, a 100% volunteer run foundation has raised over 1.6 million dollars for Childhood Cancer Research. Only 4% of the annual funding from the National Cancer Institute goes toward Pediatric Cancer Research. This is not enough. Infinite Love works to bridge the gap as well as help families primarily in NJ and CT (the two states where the foundations President and VP live) with financial support during treatment.

In February of 2018, co-owner of Background Coffee Co, Jim was named the Vice President of Infinite Love. Jim got involved after the passing of his 6 year old daughter following a 364 day fight with Rhabdomyosarcoma.

Phil knew there was more that could be done. In the early years of Background Coffee Co. we donated to many local childhood health foundations. One day Phil looked at Jim and said, "Let's just do it all for Infinite Love." 

As they say, the rest is history. Both Jim and Phil are committed to helping people who have had the struggles of their lives come from the background to the foreground. Background Coffee Co. is their humble attempt to inspire others to be a part of change. 

We make GREAT coffee... but we hope to really make a difference and encourage your to INVEST IN HOPE.
