If you're looking for ways to cut back on your weekly coffee budget and you want to help out a good cause, Sorry Thanks I Love You's inner-city store is the place for you every Friday.

Originally launched online in 2015 before setting up a brick-and-mortar store and then moving to Westfield Sydney, Sorry Thanks I Love You is all about gifting differently, offering a range of items that are unique and thoughtfully designed to give to your best friend, a family member, your partner or even yourself. The emphasis here is on handmade, expertly designed products that tell a story. All of the creations in the space are unique, so you're in very little danger of doubling up on gifts for your mate.

Among the clothes, accessories and homewares, the retailer also runs a cafe within the store. And, while the focus of the shop is on helping you find the perfect gift, it also gives back, donating to the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse cancer treatment centre.

In order to encourage donations, Sorry Thanks I Love You is offering up its Single O coffee for a gold coin at the end of each work week. Each Friday morning, anyone who comes in-store to get their morning coffee can pay with a gold coin donation to the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. That's right, you can pick up your daily cup of joe for as little as $1 and know the money is helping out.

The promotion kicked off last year, but has been extended indefinitely after its success. STILY is aiming to raise enough money for 100 patient visits to the Lifehouse's psychology and counselling services, one gold coin at a time.

While there will be a moneybox where you can donate your physical coins, you can pay via EFTPOS if you don't carry cash. You can also chip in online via STILY's website.
