Put A Little Love In Your Heart

From day one, Love Bug Café & Play has been committed to donating a portion of proceeds to local community and global charitable causes that are near & dear to our hearts. Whether it's sponsoring a booth at the Taste of Tribeca outdoor food festival to help support the Arts & Enrichment programs for local public schools, or donating 5¢ directly to (PRODUCT)RED™ funds for every children’s red cup beverage ordered to help raise awareness and eliminate HIV/AIDS in eight African countries (including many coffee growing communities)...we believe that ensuring a bright future for our children starts by giving back each day.
