There’s a wonderful new trend in Canada from coast to coast and around the world, nothing to do with fashion. This trend started way back centuries ago in Italy and is popularly known as ‘suspended coffee’ wherein a donor buys coffee and the recipient gets it free. Paying forward, one coffee at a time.
At first people thought it was just a publicity stunt but the spokesperson at Tim Horton’s assured the public that it’s not and that it’s for real. An act of generosity by some anonymous patients sent out 500 free coffees at a downtown Toronto hospital Tim Horton’s Outlet.

It’s called caffè sospeso — “suspended coffee”. “It’s an elegant way to show generosity: an act of charity in which donors and recipients never meet each other, the donor doesn’t show off and the recipient doesn’t have to show gratitude.” (Courtesy of npr.org/blogs)
