It’s even better when it makes everyone feel good. About ten years ago a friend started a type of charity where she gathered a group of people together monthly to gather very meaningful items for people who were not homeless but were going through a very difficult time in their lives, usually involving a very serious loss of another person or health or something that could ruin lives. She moved away and suddenly there was no one left to run it so it was given to me. I’ve been doing that ever since.  I don't always get to meet the people we provide for.  Usually someone else distributes.  But we get cards and sometimes pictures.  It is one of the most impactful things I’ve ever done.

I ran across an organization called "Suspended Coffees" that promotes the idea of helping those who might not be able to afford something as simple as a cup of coffee - something most of us take for granted.  The organization enlists the participation of coffee shops/restaurants to allow customers to buy a coffee for themselves and a "suspended coffee" for someone less fortunate who can walk in and ask for a suspended coffee. and it goes way beyond coffee - it's about being kind and helping out the less fortunate.

What a great idea!  Thank you for doing that.  I looked at the list and there isn’t one anywhere near me.  Although I don’t know how anyone can afford a daily Starbucks.  $4-5 for a drink?

I would hope that the "suspended coffee" was just a basic cup of coffee and not some fancy $10 designer drink.

There are not a lot of participating businesses although they are spread all over the world.  There are only 2 in the NY City area and one is a food truck. 

They DO have options on the site to print out literature to provide to businesses to get them to sign up.

Yes it probably was regular coffee.  Designer drinks are just a bunch of fake flavors and sugar.  I read a review once and they found the best tasting plain black coffee at #1 McDonalds and #2 7-11.

I bet people don’t know about it.  I’m going to promote it here, but it should be posted on social media to go viral.
