I have been donating a lot to twitch, omaze, buymeacoffee, patreon and other platforms for content creators and donation initiatives for some time now.
Every time i donate i feel a nice feeling as if i am doing something meaningful and good.
I recently found a TED talk video that explains that phenomenon pretty well:
I have an idea to kick-start my buy me a coffee page using a “free hanging cofee” method.
A caffè sospeso (for ‘“suspended coffee”’ or “pending coffee” is a cup of coffee paid for in advance as an anonymous act of charity. Also known as “pay it forward”.
The tradition began in the working-class cafés Naples, where someone who had experienced good luck would order a sospeso , paying the price of two coffees but receiving and consuming only one.
A less fortunate person enquiring later whether there was a sospeso available would then be served a coffee for free.
So my idea is: for every cup bought for me by content creators and other BMC users I shall answer back with 2 cups bought back to the same BuyMeACoffee user, until reaching a given threshold (lets say 100 cups).
If that above is not against the terms and services i would like to offer this to other content creators?
