There is a Restaurant in Norway that has come out with a selfless act of charity and kindness for all the needy people of their country:
Do you know what is “Suspended Coffee” or “Suspended Meal”? Let me tell you what this is:
A woman went to this restaurant and when giving money at the counter tells the billing person: “Five coffees, two suspended”. She then gave money for five coffees and carried three cups of coffee with her to the table. Another person came and ordered: “Ten coffees, five suspended.” He too paid for ten and grabbed five coffees.” After that another woman came and ordered: “Five meals, two suspended” She then paid for five meals and took three lunch packets with her.”
An old man with shabby and dirty clothes then entered the restaurant, came to the counter and said in a quiet voice, “Any, suspended coffee?” He asked. The woman at the counter said, “Yes,” and served a cup of hot coffee. Soon another bearded man came in and asked, “any suspended meals?” The man at the counter gave a parcel of hot rice and curry and a bottle of water.
In this way, this generous restaurant catered to so many destitute people who were so satisfied and happy with this act of kindness. They need not go hungry and famished. Helping the unknown and poor even without knowing their face, is the kind of humanity which really is the best form of charity. What is more remarkable is that, this good act has come to a few countries in Europe and is spreading throughout the world.
We have millions of hungry people in our World. It is so difficult to even get one square meal to eat in a day and so many go to sleep with just plain glasses of water. It would be so nice if there are restaurants that cater to such acts of kindness and generosity instead of throwing away tons and tons of food that is cooked in surplus. Food is meant for each and every human being on this Planet. Let us all learn to eat sparingly and not lavishly and not waste at all.
CHARITY IS THE BEST FORM OF PRAYER. GIVE LAUGHTER, GIVE JOY. REAL HAPPINESS LIES IN MAKING OTHERS HAPPY.
