The tall, skinny man of Caffe Ladro cups will be a little smaller for a while.
Caffe Ladro, in conjuction with Seattle Children's Hospital and the Puget Sound chapter of Little People of America, is part of a campaign called "Stand Tall for Little People." It’s all part of National Dwarfism Awareness Month, which is being celebrated nationwide in October.
Caffe Ladro, which has 13 locations in Puget Sound, , will actually break out the special cups on Friday, said Edmonds Caffe Ladro store manager Dawn Ponton.
“Caffe Ladro is committed to supporting our local community and the causes that are important to our community members,” said Caffe Ladro owner Jack Kelly in a news release. “We are amazed by the incredible work done at Seattle Children’s and through Little People of America, and are honored to partner with them to help stand tall for little people.”
The cup redesign is for Caffe Ladro’s tall-sized cups, which will have a smaller version of the company’s signature man in coat and hat. The cup includes the phrase “Stand Tall for Little People.”
The cup also has a link to Little People of Puget Sound’s website, where those interested can learn more about the campaign.
Caffe Ladro has 13 locations in Puget Sound, including Edmonds. They include several in Seattle and also in Lynnwood, Bothell, Kirkland, Bellevue and Issaquah Highlands.
