Magical. A great business. What's not to love??
When it comes to coffee, little did the world know that Peter Andre would be opening a cafe chain called The New York Coffee Club with his brother Danny… and they're doing much more than slingin' joe!
They've taken on an intern that might not have had many other opportunities, and they're being honored for it! You see, their intern has epilepsy — and The Young Epilepsy Champion Awards has singled the brothers out for helping him! They were given the Employability and Enterprise Champion 2013 prize, and Andre and his sibling were even there to accept it!
Here's what he said:
"It is heartbreaking that in this day and age epilepsy can still have such a devastating effect. I am so proud of my brother for the difference he is making to young lives with epilepsy. There is still a mountain to climb when it comes to raising epilepsy awareness and breaking down the stigma that surrounds it, but with the support of more people like the Young Epilepsy Champions, we will get there."
We need more people like you guys in the world!
People with epilepsy are people too — they need to work, they need to support themselves and loved ones! It sucks that opportunities for them are few and far between!
