Contribute is a surprisingly comfortable and versatile ink pen housing made entirely of concrete, neodymium magnets, and a spring plunger. Perhaps the thinest concrete pen in the world, it boasts the first unified concrete design. Compatible with many of the most appreciated ink refills.
Aptly named after it's main mission, Contribute is the first in line of a series of products which advocate ideas that extend value beyond the product's tangible use. Faddis Design is working toward the mission to help fund organizations which empower individuals and their communities to improve quality of life experiences. The first partnership begins with Traveling Stories, a non-profit whose mission is bringing books to people who wouldn't have the opportunity otherwise.
