Got Your Six Coffee Co. (GY6CC) is passionate about helping veterans and others who put their lives on the line everyday to serve and protect us. Because of that a portion of all the profits from Got Your Six Coffee go to our non-profit, GY6 Foundation which has a primary mission to ‘serve those who serve’.
Veteran homelessness, veteran suicides, and the daily struggles that veterans, LEO’s, EMT’s and Fire Fighters have with respect to PTSD needs to be addressed and we intend to lend a hand with that… 8 of them to be exact. That is exactly why we have an octopus as part of our logo because we are lending a hand, or arm in this case, to members of the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy, Marine Corp, Law Enforment, Emergency Medical Technicians and those in the Fire Fighting community.
In September of 2017, during our response to Hurricane Irma, we learned that many of the First Responders did not go home at night. They work long days which not allow them to go home and they often crash at the station.
This got us thinking…while the First Responders are taking care of the community, who is taking care of their families? Often times their families are left to fend for themselves. This is where we come in! We “have their 6”.
Thanks to amazing sponsors, partners and companies who believe in our mission of service to those who serve, we are well on our way towards completing our Got Your Six Coffee Co Disaster Response/Coffee Truck.
Its hard enough to find a needle in a hay stack. Let alone two needles at the same time.
Clay Croft of Expedition Overland and Dave Harriton of American Expedition Vehicles have both been a huge inspiration to me. I have watched them over the years following their dreams, accomplishing their goals, turning their passions into careers. They both live by the creed that if your turn your passions into careers you will never work another day in your life.
