The Spirit of Christmas All Year Round

Today I went to the wonderful Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne and spent a few hours in this lovely place. I just love the whole vibe and there are sustainable lifestyle organisations, a large artistic community, a radio station as well as the vegetarian cafe Lentil As Anything. This cafe has a donation operated system - you eat and then donate whatever you like instead of being charged a set amount. This relies on honesty, integrity and appreciation by the average person. And, to make it that little bit more amazing, they use organic produce and serve fair trade tea and coffee! The cafe began in 2000 in St Kilda and now has expanded to five locations. So, in the spirit of Christmas, let's just remember that all year round, people are genorous and giving at Lentil as Anything!

To be inspired, have a read of their sign - it gives me warm fuzzies!!!
