Mandy Meyer decided to raise funds to buy her ‘office barista’ a new pair of reading glasses. To do so she decided to run 1km for every share/like she gets.

 

Mandy Meyer works in an office with her number one favourite superhero of all time, Mags! Mags has been dubbed the ‘office barista’ for her mad coffee making skills. However Mags is having some trouble with her eyes.

Mandy decided to help Mags by raising the funds needed to buy reading glasses.

“Anyone that knows me will know that I absolutely love coffee. I love filter coffee, I love a lekker latte, don’t even get me started on Cappuccinos, and even a good cuppa instant coffee will make my heart skip a beat.”

“I have major trust issues, as in I don’t trust anybody with the making of my coffee because they usually make shit coffee! Especially those tea drinkers, they have no clue how to make coffee. #FuckenTeaDrinkers”

“Wait, there is one person that I trust, she is my very own superhero and her name is Mags. She also likes teasing me on a daily basis.”

“Mags is our office barista and makes the best coffee ever. She knows exactly when I need a cup of coffee, she knows what strength to make it and she keeps up date with when I drink milk and when I don’t.”

Mandy says the one superpower that Mags doesn’t have is good eyesight, she wants to fix the problem before Mags starts serving her tea instead of coffee. To help draw attention to the fundraising, Mandy had the idea of swapping likes for kms. The more likes she gets, the farther she has to run.

“I will run 1 km for every like and share that this post generates until we reach the goal of getting my superhero new glasses. I will run the total amount of km’s over the duration of September.”

“Please note: If this post goes viral, the total run kilometers will be split up into a high but doable amount per month.”
