Plastic casting. My mom was kind enough to come visit me, even though it meant hanging out all day in a super hot stuffy studio and taking pictures of me doing repetitive things with metal and plastic

We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter: ‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.  I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?” My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.” Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks ‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’ It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

I just saw this and thought it would be incredible to share this so maybe it  could catch on whereever you may live

Almost out of time, almost to my goal!

I’m trying to fund the opportunity to take a course with the National Outdoor Leadership School this summer. This course would have a huge impact on my personal development and my career as an Industrial Designer looking to work with sustainability and conservation. I’m almost out of time though, only 2 days left! 
My page is here, please check it out!

Also, please please please reblog! I totally understand if you can’t afford to  support this financially, but one of your followers might be willing and able to help! 

Through my fundraiser, you can also buy some pretty awesome handmade jewelry! Such as these =D
