Cafés all around the world have had to close and not all café owners and the people who work for them now have easy access to income. So I’m making a point of visiting them virtually, having a look round and buying a virtual drink – I’m thinking of at 60% of RRP – as I won’t actually be using any resources.
I’m asking cafés who are in contact to add a donate PayPal button. If they don’t have one, you can pay via the generic one here and then use the contact form to let us know which café you went to and how much you spent. At the end of each month I’ll reconcile the amount and pay them to the café. I’ll display this all on the web-site.
If you “visit” one that is already collecting its own money it might be nice to give them a little review. Email that to me via the contact form.
Even if cafés have the right insurance or are wealthy enough to cope this might all give them a leg up when they open again.
And just think. Travel is limited now but you can go to many destinations all around the world by visiting a café virtually.
And it could be a distraction.
