STAGE TUBE: Hugh Jackman Launches Laughing Man Charity
While visiting Ethiopia with World Vision, Broadway-bound Hugh Jackman met a coffee farmer named Dukale. He met his family and friends, worked The Farm with Dukale and saw how much a community could be benefit from one person's hard work, coupled with a little help.
Inspired by his time with Dukale, Hugh promised he would help. Laughing Man Worldwide is the fulfillment of the promise; a company that supports entrepreneurs who believe the commerce and community grow together and gives 100% profits to charity. The first company incubated by Laughing Man Worldwide is Laughing Man Coffee & Tea, importing, roasting and serving specialty coffee & tea.
