Campfire Coffee (Tacoma, WA)

Campfire Coffee, owned by Quincy and Whitni Henry, is the only coffee roaster in the nation honoring the age old tradition of roasting coffee over an open campfire flame; bringing the world of specialty coffee to their local community. In August of 2020, they expanded from an online selling platform to opening a coffee shop in downtown Tacoma; handcrafting specialty drinks using their campfire roasted beans. Campfire Coffee also seeks to not only bring further accessibility to uniquely roasted coffee but they also have a strong social mission. Understanding the needs of their community and the barriers youth have in accessing outdoor recreation; Campfire Coffee has partnered with numerous local non-profit organizations to raise funds for kids and families to have access to outdoor education programs. They are hoping to one day be able to launch their own outdoor program for families and youth in their community.  

2020 Innovation Award Winner ($10,000 Prize)

Founded by Nate and Lindsey Sylling; Sylling’s Elderberry creates an elderberry syrup using simple, organic ingredients with no artificial preservatives; having an ancient history of supporting the immune system, maintaining whole body health, and having anti-viral, anti-cancer, and anti-inflammatory properties. Requests for their elderberry syrup spiked in 2020 causing Sylling’s Elderberry to find solutions to meet the new demand of their product. Sylling’s created a doorstep drop off service, and also produced Do-It-Yourself brewing kits for those who prefer to make their own syrup, have special dietary restrictions or want to choose an alternative sweetener for their syrup. When faced with supply chain disruptions, they worked with other producers to establish the nationwide Elderberry Trade Association; allowing members across the country to obtain quality elderberries in larger cost efficient quantities.

Amma's Umma (Port Angeles, WA)

Amma's Umma, meaning “A Mother’s Kiss” in India, is an intentionally sourced lifestyle boutique located in the town of Port Angeles. Owner Chelsea Winfield, spent three years in India, where she discovered most children living in orphanages have a family; the key to these families reuniting often times was access to a dignified, living wage job. By starting an intentionally sourced boutique Amma’s Umma helps create and sustain these jobs, which in turn bring children home from the orphanages. Amma’s Umma believes every action can have a global, life giving ripple and when clients shop at Amma’s they are helping in their mission and belief that every child deserves 'a mother's kiss' and are giving to a cause that makes it become a reality.
