The idea of suspended coffee is a simple one.

You go into your local coffee shop and are able to say 'I would like three coffee's please, two to go and one suspended'.

Then if somebody in need (it could be somebody homeless, somebody jobless or just somebody that really needs it) asks later on if there are any suspended coffee's available the barista can give them a coffee for free (this could also be extended to suspended food).

This means that the company involved (and in this case I am asking the three coffee giants, Starbucks, Pret a Manger and Costa to give it a chance) does not lose any product or any profit as the coffee is paid for by other customers. There is also the idea of putting a sign in the window letting people know that you are taking part in the movement - this makes it easy for people that need it to see and also is great for company image and responsibility.

The movement gives somebody that otherwise may not have somewhere somewhere warm to be for a little while with something hot to drink in an environment they may otherwise feel alienated from. It gives them a little bit of respite from what can only be a difficult existence.

This movement is about people helping each other, and not expecting anything in return.

So what I am asking is that once in a while companies with the resources to make a difference, namely, Costa, Starbucks and Pret a Manger, open their doors (even if it is for one hour per day, one day for week, maybe just in a few shops to begin etc - anything is a start) and allow people not as privileged as their regular clientele to enjoy a few moments of peace with a hot drink, sacrificing none of their profit and none of their product  - as far as human rights goes, that doesn't sound like too much to ask. 

Does it?

Please sign the petition today - what may be a couple of pounds of free coffee to you might be a lifeline to somebody else.
