Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Turkey’s ancient tradition of “paying it forward”

Askıda ekmek, meaning bread on a hook, is an old tradition through which the wealthy support the poor in Turkey. For example, someone buys a loaf of bread for a price of two at a bakery, so that the baker can give the already paid loaf of bread to someone in need. It is a practice originated back in the Ottoman era to help people without expectation of reward or recognition. It also follows one of the five pillars of Islam teaching. Sounds like a practical way to connect those who can afford to those in need in an anonymous way. This tradition is also practiced online connecting people across the country. Using social media platforms, donors can simply click the amount and recipients can enjoy free meals at participating restaurants or cafes. This is especially helpful to connect college students to the companies that intend to help them. Innovation can be used not only for convenience but also for conscience.

Enjoy reading the article and think about this street practice and online practice to connect people and their wills.
