On the warm summer morning of July 18th in the year 2018 it all started. There was a small quaint little coffee shop in lovely downtown Bingen, WA. Somehow, this fine establishment, loved by all, caught fire. All of the people, children, and small animals of the forest arrived to help save this coffee shop but much to their dismay were not able to save the place that they all loved so dearly.
Without this coffee shop serving the community, surely anarchy would soon overwhelm this lovely town. People will no longer have a place to soothe their frazzled nerves or meet to discuss the state of affairs. Everything was lost that early morning so we ask, nay plead, that you consider donating to bring this staple of the community back to its once glorious state.
To anyone who would like to help, these donations will go toward an amazing group of people who just lost everything.

I’d like to first say thank you to absolutely everyone who has sent their well wishes and prayers. Your encouragement has meant everything to us.
I wanted to take a moment to address the go fund me page. There has been some questions and concerns. Two customers wanted to do something to help get Mugs back on its feet. I feel very blessed they did this but I think there needs to be some clarity. I, Blaire the owner of Mugs, have poured my heart and soul into this community because I believe in the warmth and generosity this little town of Bingen has to offer. I opened Mugs doors 7 years ago with the purpose of being a place for everyone to feel appreciated and valued. It’s in this moment that I feel the most impassioned. I’m not giving up! Everything was lost in the fire. We have insurance but it may not cover everything And it may take quite a while. In the meantime I’ve got a cafe to rebuild, girls to put back to work and most importantly, a place to create so that this little town can come with open arms and have hope. If you believe in me and feel led to donate great. If you’d rather give me a hug on the street and tell me you’re rooting for me, all the better. Either way, I won’t let you down! All my love, Blaire
