Pagi-pagi, begitu sampai di kantor, saya mendapati sepiring cupcakes di meja tengah. Ternyata cupcake ini buatan Lucas, anak kawan saya, Felicia Nugroho.

Lucas membuat cupcake ini (dari pisang; dan menggantikan rasa manis gula dengan saus apel) untuk dijual, dan yang mengejutkan saya, ternyata separuh dari keuntungannya akan dia sumbangkan untuk Coin a Chance!. Satu buah cupcake dijual seharga 5ribu rupiah.

Is this a school project?” tanya saya pada Lucas, takjub.

Dia bilang, “No, it’s holiday,” sambil tersenyum malu-malu.

Have you got your customers’ feedback?” tanya Felicia.

What’s that?” Lucas bertanya balik.

“You ask those who have bought your cupcakes, whether they like it or not, whether they want something else…” Felicia menjelaskan. “You need to explain to them as well about your product, for instance, how you change sugar with apple sauce…

Setelah bertanya-tanya pada ‘para pembeli’, besok Lucas akan membuat cupcakes lagi (cokelat, berdasarkan permintaan pembeli), tapi kali ini ia akan menjualnya ‘sepaket’ dengan segelas kopi. Jadi 10ribu untuk satu cupcake dan satu gelas kopi. “We can bring our coffee machine,” katanya semangat.

Saat ini, ke-18 cupcakes yang dijual Lucas sudah ludes. Satu cupcake terakhir yang diperebutkan Jonathan dan Dody akhirnya dilelang, dan berhasil terjual kepada Jonathan seharga 30ribu rupiah. Sekarang Lucas sedang membagi separuh penghasilan yang didapatkannya untuk disumbangkan ke Coin a Chance! πŸ™‚

Thanks, Lucas! For doing ‘social business’ on your holiday and helping us send more kids back to school at the same time! :*

Do you often find yourself feeling guilty about taking some time to rest? "We all need rest, not because it makes us more productive at our jobs, but because it makes us happier, healthier, more well-rounded people," wrote Homan.

While most of us think of the past as something that happens behind us and the future lies ahead of us, for the Aymara people, it's the other way around. The Aymara people see the past as something that lies ahead of us, and the future as something that lies behind us.
