Activity Descriptions


The Well Coffeehouse

We will start the morning with coffee and a pastry at The Well Coffeehouse where coffee is turned into water!  While there, we will hear from CEO, Mike Lenda, who will share the history of The Well, an idea that was created by Lipscomb's College of Business own faculty member, Rob Touchstone.  For more information about The Well Coffeehouse, visit here.  


After coffee and pastries, we will travel to the flagship fashion store, ABLE.  Deeply devoted to quality - both in products made and the quality of life they aim to provide - ABLE is an ethical fashion brand that employs and empowers women as a solution to end poverty.  ABLE invests in, trains, and educates women so they can earn a living, break the cycle of poverty, and thrive.  After touring the facility and learning about design and craftsmanship, we will have the chance to do some shopping (just in time for Christmas AND with a special discount code.)  For more information about ABLE, go here.

The Cafe at Thistle Farms

Finally, we will enjoy lunch together at The Cafe at Thistle Farms.  Amidst stories of violence against women is the universal story of hope and transformation.  Here, we will hear from a survivor, learn more about the way Thistle Farms is changing the lives of women, and have an opportunity to do a bit more shopping while supporting missional business.  For more information, go here.
