Last summer, I received an e-mail from Joe "Guisepi" Spadafora, who introduced his concept of the Free Tea Party to me. What is the Free Tea Party, it is an eco-conscious tea party on wheels. He began serving up his tea parties tailgate fashion three years ago on Hollywood Boulevard. The premise being that tea brings people together, and he is hoping to build and strengthen communities through tea and human interaction. These communities are the foundation from which he hopes to pollinate positive social and environmental changes. Guisepi wrote to me hoping that I would lend some artwork to the project, which of course I was very happy to do.
Please check out his web site. I gave him carte blanche to use whatever he needed and, as it turns out he is quite creative too. If you’d like to lend a hand in any way, I am sure he would appreciate donations of tea or other supplies. Or, if you should happen upon Guisepi someday, please stop for a cup of tea.
