No it's not hanging up, but it is hanging around
Have you come across this wonderful initiative that is spreading like wild fire? Originating in Italy, the idea is to buy a coffee for your self and add one or more to the order. These are "Suspended" and available for needy people who come in later.
I haven't come across a venue that offers these yet, but perhaps it only works in certain areas.
I've heard that in some places they will serve as many as 50 suspended coffees in a week. It's certainly an easy way to perform your Random Act of Kindness.
Buy one for you and one for Ron. ( That's lateR ON in Aussie slang)
