Over the past 15 years, Coffee Break? events have taken on various looks, styles and locations. They are held in communities from coast-to-coast and can be found in retail stores, businesses, schools or an individual's home. Anyone can make a donation to the Society in exchange for a cup of coffee, or purchase a paper cut-out of a coffee cup to show their support. 

"In January 2010, we launched the full report, Rising Tide: The Impact of Dementia on Canadian Society, that shows a looming crisis with the number of Canadians with dementia increasing by up to 50 per cent within just the next five years, says Benczkowski. "We must act now. Raising funds through Coffee Breaks is now more important than ever."
