A couple posts ago I shared about For a Friend and their mission to create a place for people to give thoughtful and useful gifts to international workers and missionaries. Today I saw posts going around on twitter about this guy, Jonathan. He created a quite fascinating social experiment through a gift card at Starbucks.
Sadly humanity answered our hopeful questions of “are we good?” by “misusing the card”, according to Starbucks who shut the project down Friday, August 12th. I spent some time reading through a few articles about this experiment and the heart behind it…here were a few good ones.
So, what do you think of all this? How do you approach giving?
