The Sugar Cube Factory is a website that helps people to distribute their words of kindness around the world. It is a platform to spread random acts of kindness.

A Sugar Cube is a short message (Up to 300 characters) that is written with the sole intention to make somebody else happy. Senders/writers can sign their messages or not, but they will never know who received their Sugar Cubes. 

We believe that people do not necessarily need to be connected in order to positively affect other people's lives in a personal way. This is not about distributing inspirational content online, this is about real people with good intentions sending a personal positive message to other people.

Sender and receivers do not share contact details through the website or Sugar Cubes. The Sugar Cube Factory is not a social networking site, it is a place where you can do something special for an stranger.

Who writes Sugar Cubes? Anybody who wants to express positive thoughts and make somebody smile.

Who receives Sugar Cubes? People who have already written Sugar Cubes and decide they also want to receive kind messages from strangers.

We want to build a place where people can practice a random act of kindness and benefit from other people's good intentions.

Who are we?

Henry Schmieder: Web developer, freelancer,father,geek and taekwondo enthusiast. Sofia Quintero: Project manager,researcher, freelancer, geek and hip hop dancer. Esteban Correa: Promotion, amateur photographer, blogger. Jose Tortolero:  Logistics, consultant and food lover.

What do you need the money for?

To pay for the web design and Sugar Cube templates, application development, hosting and promoting to let people know about the factory and start spreading the love.

Our dream?

To build a platform where anybody can positively impact thousands of people around the world with a small act of kindess.
