Every day on the streets of Mumbai thousands of children go hungry, and some even starve to death. Happy Life Welfare is an NGO that had very little resources and money, but a very big heart. They wanted to solve this overwhelming problem on our streets, but didn’t know how.
The Share sticker transformed a food-delivery network into a food-sharing network. It educated and inspired people about the problem on our streets, and inspired them to share with those who don’t have enough. All through an existing network, at minimal cost, and without hampering a 6-sigma system.
We got in touch with the Dabbawalas, a century old lunch delivery network famous for its 6-sigma practices, and found out that off the 120 tonnes of food they deliver everyday, over 16 tonnes goes untouched-uneaten. Our solution – create a direct response mechanism within the food network, than can get this food to the children without affecting a 6-sigma system. And so we created – the Share sticker. Untouched-uneaten food in your dabba (lunchbox)? Just put the Share sticker on it. The dabbawalas can now instantly share these dabbas with the NGO and hungry children.
From just two hubs on the streets of Mumbai, with a subscriber base of hundreds of users, this little Share sticker has managed to feed thousands. It also got the Human Resource Minister, mainline media, hundreds of sites and blogs, and thousands on social networking talking about the virtues of sharing food. We even saw the idea inspire private lunch services to proactively start sharing food. All this with a sticker that costs a mere fourth of a cent.
