The DAQRI smart helmet has been a four-year project for the company. Founder Brian Muller says, “You just can’t solve the most challenging problems with devices that were designed for consumers.”

[VIDEO] ‘Share My Dabba’ - A Small Sticker Trying to Make a Difference

While 1.6 Million people in Mumbai, India, enjoy their lunch today, 200,000 children on the streets will go hungry. And sadly, 2 will starve to death.

'Share My Dabba (tiffin)' is an incredibly innovative and compassionate initiative to get 16 tons of uneaten food daily in ‘dabbas’ to 200,000 hungry street children in Mumbai using just a small 'Share' sticker and the ‘dabbawala’ network.

'A dabba (Tiffin carriers or dabbas) are a kind of tin lunch box used widely in India for tiffin meals.’ - Wikipedia

'A dabbawala (also spelled as dabbawalla or dabbawallah) is a person in India, most commonly in Mumbai, who is part of a delivery system that collects hot food in lunch boxes from the residences of workers in the late morning, delivers the lunches to the workplace utilizing various modes of transport, predominantly bicycles and the railway trains, and returns the empty boxes back to the customer’s residence that afternoon.’ - Wikipedia

The initiative was conceived by McCann Mumbai, and is a non-profit collaboration between Happy Life Welfare Society and The Dabbawala Foundation.

I have no doubt that this rich, simple idea has changed the lives for many children in need of food in Mumbai.
