Join Pay With A Poem

Why not, for a moment, forget about using emojis, perfectly filtered photos, and gifs to express yourself?
Let a cup of Julius Meinl inspire you to spell out your feelings instead.

In the past 6 years we have inspired thousands of coffee and tea drinkers worldwide through our global campaign. We appreciate that this year is exceptional because of the COVID-19 situation. The result is that many of our valued partners have had to close their doors to the public – we hope that they will be able to re-open soon. 

We are still committed to fighting global illiteracy with our education charity partner, Worldreader, as part of this year’s campaign.  That is why, as of now until 21st March, wherever you enjoy your coffee or tea, you can be inspired and submit your poem as a post on your Instagram feed and tag #PayWithAPoem.  It will count towards this year’s donation target.

This is how it works

Every poem counts

As part of our ongoing mission to make the world a better place through poetic inspiration, we have partnered with global education charity Worldreader.

We united in a shared belief in the power of words to make a difference for ourselves and for the planet this World Poetry Day. With 14% of the global population illiterate, bringing people into the world of words introduces them to a form of creative and powerful expression.

We join forces with Worldreader to reach our common goal to make the world a better place by giving more people access to the beauty of written words and poetry. We will fight illiteracy one poem at a time. Every poem counts towards a donation target in support of global literacy. Donations raised could fund projects in selected countries where we source coffee such as Ethiopia, Kenya and India.

Get inspired and show your support by writing a poem in exchange for a free coffee or tea of your choice. Every poem will count towards the 100,000 poems donation goal. In addition, the best poetic submissions globally will be hosted on the Worldreader app for millions to read and enjoy.

365 words left

We take words for granted in our busy, day to day, life. What would you do if you only had 365 words left to say? How would you spend them in the most meaningful way? Watch our campaign video and get inspired to rediscover the power of words.

Adrian Păunescu are o poezie foarte frumoasă, se numește “Nebun de alb” și cred că este cel mai frumos poem pe care l-am citit vreodată. Poezia mea preferată, cu siguranță ❤ Aduc asta în discuție din două motive: 1) ca recomandare de lectură (e minunată, o să va placă sigur - recomand aici și varianta cântată a lui Emeric Imre) și 2) ca să bifez în calendar ziua de 21 Martie, Ziua Internațională a Poeziei. Julius Meinl desfășoară o campanie foarte frumoasă la această dată (posibil cea mai frumoasă la care am luat eu vreodată parte), “Plătește cu poezie”. Scrii o poezie și plătești cu ea pentru cafeaua ta Julius Meinl din cafenelele participante. Fără $$$. Cam cât de minunată e ideea asta? 😊 #PayWithaPoem #PauzaDePoezie ...

Poezie compusa pe loc:
"Am inteles dintr-o scrisoare ca vrei sa te muti la mare/ Sa nu mai vezi ochi straini/ Sa traiesti printre delfini/ Vrei din scoici sa-ti faci sutien/ Si pe zona de corali sa-ti iei teren/ Sa ai parul coafat, cu sare si sclipiri de diamant/ Iubitul tau inca se zbate pe uscat, vrea sa se faca deputat/ Dar tu #rezisti, Stii ca viata-i efemera/ De-aia te-ai facut sirena."
Astazi Julius Meinl iti ofera o cafea, daca dai la schimb o poezie scrisa de tine! 😍 Eu am luat-o pe a mea, harta locurilor participante din intreaga lume poate fi consultata pe site-ul lor. #poetryforchange #paywithapoem #juliusmeinl
