Suspended?!

Posted by Viv on

We at Brown Bag Crisps, love a charitable arm as much as the next person! After all, we do live in the United Kingdom, which kind of suggests we are good at this stuff. We love Londoners for many reasons but one of our top reasons is their ability to start a social word-of mouth movement. Actions really do speak louder than words, and this is the most recent way of helping others in need and we encourage you to do it. We at Brown Bag Crisps are going to try it!

It’s called a ‘suspended coffee’. For those of you who don’t know what that is, let me divulge. It’s when you pop into your local coffee shop and order your coffee and a ‘suspended coffee’. You pay for both, but only leave with yours. Then later on, a homeless person will go into the same coffee shop and ask if there are any suspended coffees available, at which point your paid-for coffee gets handed over! This is a fabulous idea! It’s spreading like wildfire among the homeless and people are advancing from suspended coffees to sandwiches and meals! We may start with some suspended crisps. We love the idea of the this social secret and decided to share so you could become part of the secret too. Join us in getting suspended!
