Hope Center

On March 4, 2020 we will be partnering with Hope Center Inc. by giving 10% of our sales to this outstanding organization!

Hope Center's goal is to enrich the lives of men, women, and children living in poverty by providing for immediate human needs so that they become thriving residents, mothers, fathers, and responsible community members. They provide basic needs like clothing, food, and furniture for free...simply amazing!

We hope you plan your lunch date, daily coffee stop, or special treat for Wednesday, March 4 at Mama D's Coffee (all 3 locations are participating). In doing so, you'll not only be treating and feeding yourself, but you'll be giving back to the community as well.

Mama D's Cares Day partners with our baristas' Dressember team 'Fight it with Fashion'

Dressember uses fashion to advocate for people who've been exploited or trapped in trafficking situations. As women and men take on the creative challenge of wearing a dress or bow-tie for the 31 days of December, they are advocating for the inherent dignity of all people. 

Fight it with Fashion is made up of four Mama D's baristas Kelsey, Tara, Alex, & Ali. Maybe you've noticed them wearing dresses all month long? There's a reason! By participating in Dressember, advocates partner in the fight to rescue, protect, and restore the lives of trafficking victims across the world. This year, Fight it with Fashion is aiming to raise $2,500 for anti-trafficking grants through the Dressember campaign (money raised goes to IJM, A21, and McMahon Ryan). 

On December 20 Mama D's Coffee donated a percentage of sales to the Dressember team Fight it with Fashion.  You can learn more at Consider supporting their team directly at

Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Herma Heart Center

June 2016


In Andy's words:


"I chose the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Herma Heart Center for Mama D’s Cares. My mom has been a nurse at Children’s for 35 years, with 25 of them being in the Heart Center. Growing up, I have been able to visit the center countless times and have gotten to know the doctors, nurses and support staff - as well as witness all the hard work they put in each and every day. Additionally, I volunteer annually at the Herma Heart Center picnic which is held for the patients and their families. This opportunity has shown me how much the work that individuals such as my mom do can affect not only a child but their entire family. I know that any donations received for Mama D’s Cares will contribute in some way to the ongoing excellent care provided by the Herma Heart Center. Thank you to everyone for their support!"


The Herma Heart Center at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin is the largest pediatric cardiac center in the state and ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the #5 pediatric cardiology and heart surgery program in the nation. Thank You for your Support!
