DONATE to the 2018 Little Give and support Gerry Leary


It’s that magical time of year and a wonderful opportunity to share your love and kindness with the Resort 2 Kindness 2018 Little Give! Each year for our Little Give, R2K selects one deserving individual that has inspired us by his or her generosity to make a difference no matter the obstacle. This year, this extraordinary difference-maker is Gerry Leary.

Gerry Leary is the owner of a Colorado coffee shop named The Unseen Bean. Blind since birth, Gerry never let that stop him from pursuing his passion and mastering a craft that is heavily dependent on sight – coffee roasting. Proving you don’t have to see to believe in your dreams, he started “The Unseen Bean” 15 years ago, a coffee shop and roasting company, which also employs a wonderful group of equally passionate people – some who also have disabilities like Gerry.

Unfortunately, changes in the market have required Gerry to move his roasting facility more than 30 miles from its original location. And because he is blind and cannot drive, this move now requires Gerry to pay $100 a day for transportation to get to and from the facility each day – a $26,000 financial increase annually. For a small business, this can make the difference between success and financial jeopardy, so R2K wants to rally our kindness champions to help Gerry and his extraordinary team to maintain their ability to serve their community.

To help Gerry continue to fulfill his Unseen Bean dream, click on the link below and make whatever Little Give that you can -- $5, $10…or your coffee money for the week! No amount is too small, after all that’s what the Little Give is all about. Giving a Little to impact a lot! We’ll be accepting donations through December 17th! Let’s show Gerry that we share his philosophy…you don’t have to see to believe!
