‘Café Suspenso’: it takes as little as a coffee to make another person’s day a bit better...
The Association ‘Renovar a Mouraria’ is proposing a new charity initiative in the area of Mouraria in Lisbon.
The project implies that customers of cafés and bars pay not only for their drinks or food but leave another ‘paid item’ there. So any needy person who will ask for that specific item can get it without having to pay for it.
‘Café Suspenso’ aims at sensitizing people to be more open and less selfish. Anyone willing to take part in the initiative has the chance to help others with a very simple gesture.
Even if the initiative name is about coffee, through ‘Café Suspenso’ it will definitely be possible to offer other kinds of drinks, as weel as food, to people in need and the association is willing to extend the initiative to restaurants as well.
