@oxfam @firthcom @fairtrade PROGRESO CLOSES? FREE BookS with @TRUSTlibrary & @WEBiversity

I have just heard that the Fair Trade showcase Coffee Shop http://www.PROGRESO.org.uk has closed. After inspiring Fairtrade products in coffee shops and being set up by OXFAM and Colin Firth @firthcom it is a shame that it can not be saved! Can it?

On a positive note why not help/collaborate to make this NEW community project where we give things away for free!…
http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org are planning on opening 50 shops with a registered charity to give free books away and help communities. It would be great to volunteer with you on this project to help others and create a selfless enterprise!

Also http://www.WEBiversity.org has inspiring video clips and we would love to develop wthis ith others using http://www.Traidmark.org model.

Does anyone know the contact details of the people who set up Progreso to talk about taking over the shops with a different registered charity? If so contact http://www.WHYmanDESIGN.com Ed

More details about http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org below…

TRUSTlibrary.org are looking to open up 50 shops across the uk with a
registered charity to give away FREE books and I was hoping someone you
know might be interested in this?

I am trying to get in contact with the best person to see if Student
Unions across the country could be interested in running some of the 50
high street shops that we could end up managing! It would be great to
work with you to get the students to volunteer to run the shops so we
can give free books away (in exchange for donations:). This could easily
lead on to a permanent thing were we could then expand to provide drinks
or other services in the locations too!

We are looking for..
Volunteers to run individual shops across the country
Unwanted books (other items) to give away
Logisitcs to deliver the goods to the shops
More empty locations to create free trust libraries.
Funding of course to purchase many books off charity shops.

http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org enhance your work by creatinge 50 free Trust
Libraries in high street shops across the country with you (we are
working with a registered charity)? This will provide great outreach
opportunities…

We have been working on the best way to benefit your
great work with Trust Libraries and have found that we can boost
your educational and marketings aims while generating microdonations
that can fund more Trust Libraries so our collaborative success will
fund more success in a scalable manner that could sustain exponential
growth.

So…
Can we work with you to make a 21st Century version of the Carnegie
library (but 00’s of them all over the place for free)?

We have trialled this and would love to work with you to expand the
proven TRUST Library concept using your great contacts to make it a
success. Can we work with you to provide free access to reading for all?
After successfully giving free books away at the British Library we are
hoping we can give free books away where you are. Do you want any free
books or want to give free books away? If so read on
https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=348867089849

We are teaming up with a UK Charity and are looking to partner with
individuals and organisations that want to collaborate so that we can
give as many free books away to the public. The aim is to give free
books away and see how many great people are interested in helping
others by doing anything from running oneof the 50+ free Trust Libraries
to distributing books or putting on a talk, performance or importantly
helping hand out free books on the street. If you can help please list
your contact details and what you can do in the comments part below this
text (after logging in) or Tweet a message to @Trustlibrary

Also can you help http://www.webiversity.org share FREE educational
video for all AND create a collaboration microfinance platform?

Here are some points I email to everyone to help (though you probably
already have heard of this:).

A.
Empowering everyone to help everyone can be more valuable than money and
can be done cheeply/free by sharing or giving free items
(software/books) away. http://www.WEBiversity.org and
http://www.MUSTart.org are examples
of this.

B.
http://www.Traidmark.org is one example of how any funds can be spent
more efficiently by creating institutional innovation. This can be used
by anyone no matter how much money they have (especially as they use the
funds to spend them in the most creative way they can come up with so
they may not actually need any funds to create something good).
http://www.FREEtraid.com is one example.

C.
One great way to solve problems is to ask the person asking the question
(problem finder) if they know of the answer or if they can look into
solving it so they become the problem solver too:)

e.g.
1.
How can enterprise and innovation be improved and created
institutionally? http://www.Traidmark.org is one way to create
institutional innovation.

2.
How can anyone set up their own self sustaining innovation space?
http://www.BARcampBAR.org and http://www.FREEtraid.org both have
examples of how this can be done.

How else can everyone be A. Empowered to create innovative solutions so
social problems and B. Self sustain themselves by earning enough to live
and learn?
