Suspended Coffees Movement Fundraiser to Continue the Kindness
Cork: The Suspended Coffees movement, recognised all over the world, is the brainchild of John Sweeney, a construction worker from Cork. A humanitarian and pioneer for change, John was inspired to set up a Facebook page to spread the word about how a tradition from Naples, Italy could inspire kind acts around the entire world. The page went viral, and he now works full-time running the website and campaigning tirelessly. He needs funds to continue. A Crowd Funding page has been set up to raise much needed funds; he would like you to buy him a cup of coffee!
John's ethos is born of kindness. He says 'Kindness can come in many forms, including the purchase of a suspended coffee, which is the very idea which inspired this movement. A suspended coffee is the advance purchase of a cup of coffee for someone who needs it, regardless of the reasons why.'
John and his team believe that people are inspired by simple acts of kindness. When someone shares a story of a kind gesture, people feel uplifted and pay it forward. They are more likely to perform an act of kindness themselves.
Hotels, restaurants and coffee shops internationally are on board with the idea. The movement would not be possible without them.
The Crowd Funder is needed to help Suspended Coffees with running costs.
Along with the Crowd Funder, John and his team hope to raise funds by selling their own brand of ethically sourced coffee.
Financial Support and donations will ensure that Suspended Coffees can continue its mission to help people through spreading a message of kindness and inclusion in the community. A program to mentor teens and young adults is also in the pipeline; the value system is to help them find their own feet in the world, giving them the hope and the life skills they need to live a fulfilling life.
Suspended Coffees urges people to live in a world without judgment. If someone asks for a suspended coffee, they are in need; the circumstances vary from someone who has lost their wallet, to a homeless person in need of a warm drink. They don't judge and they implore you not to question, just be kind. So help them, and buy them a cup of virtual coffee!
