How do you get people to slow down in a bustling city like London? This kind and charming urban intervention may do the trick. Online magazine and creative studio Thoughtful has planted small origami envelopes all over the city, each with a penny and a note inside, to encourage random acts of thoughtfulness across London. The initiative asks people to pay it forward by adding their own notes and donations in the envelope in hopes of donating the packages to good causes. Anyone can get involved with the initiative too. Thoughtful is open-sourcing their design, which can be found on their website.
