A friend of mine has come up with a really cool idea. It’s somewhat geeky (which had me interested from the start) and completely for a good cause, so I think everyone should get involved.
It’s called Human Writ.es and it’s a cool little project where you buy a very nicely-designed, high quality notebook (called a Writable) and your money goes towards providing notebooks for underprivileged school kids around South Africa.
All it’ll cost you is $20 (US) – which is nothing if you look at what places like Exclusive Books charge for a Moleskin these days – and you get a really cool Human Writ.es Writeable notebook, and the awesome feeling that somewhere in South Africa, ten school kids got notebooks too.
Check it out:
The Writeable is a notebook you’ll WANT to use; something you can take to meetings and actually take notes in, unlike your iPad, which goes everywhere with you but never gets touched even though it sits in front of you in EVERY meeting you go to.
Hell, these notebooks are so cool; they may just become the next big corporate accessory. You will be recognised and respected based on your notebook.
With a Writeable, you’re the top of your game, you’re the master of awesome, you’re wanted by all and amazing in bed. You’re able to bench-press a hundred orphans with your thumb, you give Ryan Gosling acting lessons and Captain America uses your fingernails as a shield.
With anything else, you’re the stuff that came out of your dog’s nose when it had Kennel Cough.
Some cool features:
- 192 Pages of acid-free paper
- Square design with a water resistant Melody cover
- Magnetic clasp
- Whole-Brain dots (a happy medium between lines and a blank page)
- High-quality thread-drawn binding
Hey, I’m not usually one to do a hard sell on any product that I don’t believe in. The guys behind this project are solid okes and I truly believe that every cent will be put to good use.
