Repair Cafe Pasadena
Sylvia, Laurel and Greg accepted the challenge! What followed was a Skype meetup between Rob Hopkins, Sylvia and Laurel. A lot of stats and numbers were assembled from various Transition Pasadena projects. Rob chose to focus the story on Repair Cafe Pasadena. The idea that this project–Repair Cafe Pasadena–which has completed 30 events and has repaired nearly 1800 items, will be offered as a story to inspire others, gives us great delight.
What the participants have contributed to is now leaving the local arena. People from all over the world will hear how coming together to repair broken stuff can be fun, and can help create a heart shift to caring for The Earth. It may inspire folks to participate in creating community by sharing skills and the giving economy, doing the things that make a difference in our caring about our broken climate.
Repair Cafe Pasadena is proud to present YOU–all the folks who make Repair Cafe happen again and again. Did you imagine that bringing your sewing machine or soldering gun to Repair Cafe would be an idea shared with people around the world? These are the ripples you set forth.
Thank you one and all!
