Best way to celebrate a birthday

You probably already know Lucas Jatobá, the guy who spread colorful balloons around Barcelona. In this post I had described it as the perfect way to say goodbye! Well, the good thing about amazing people is that they never stop being amazing. And now Lucas surprises us once more by showing what is the best way to celebrate a birthday: yes, it has to do with gifts, but in this case, to other people besides you!

The Ultimate Intervention is getting closer

So, do you remember when I invited everybody to spend one day and do something really nice to a stranger/ community/ friend?

I called it Ultimate Intervention, the day is April 9th and it’s getting closer. Your intervention might be anything, you might spend five minutes or an hour doing it, and it’s supposed to be as much fun and simple and you want.

To clarify this event a little, I create this website.

There are already people from all over the world participating! Why don’t you join us?

10 ways to make a stranger smile

This is a reel of the past interventions. I still have to make the individual movies and tutorials to each one of them.

Gift a Stranger

One of my interventions was to spread small gifts around my block in New York. I left a book on a Coffee Shop, a flower, some stamps on a post office and etc. I called it Surprise!.

Recently I’ve found out that some smart guys used technology to take this idea to a global sphere. It’s called Gift a Stranger and what this platform basically does is to provide you with a random address of someone around the world and you send a gift to them. To participate is easy as 1,2,3. Literally.

You can also check who received what, and I should tell you that is good to see how people can be altruistically generous sometimes!
