On Saturday 21st of March, over 100,000 people showed the world that feelings are more valuable than money. With our global “Pay with a Poem” initiative we wrote another chapter in our mission to make a better world through poetry.
For a day, people were inspired to start a movement against materialism. They used the softest weapons in the world: poems. Coffee drinkers from 1153 coffee houses in 27 countries paid for their coffee with a poem and social media enthusiasts supported the campaign using the official campaign hashtag, #PayWithAPoem.
