Coffee Cup Creativity for Charity

Being avid believers that coffee fuels creativity, we loved the story of Miguel Cardona, a designer and illustrator who creates coffee cup artworks. Even more touching is the fact that all his hard work is done for good – he sells the cup canvases online and donates the proceeds to a charity that donate baby blankets, […]

If you’re […]
