Hello! We are a team of Harvard graduate students hoping to contribute to the work and mission of the Cambridge Community Center through a project for a class. As part of this project, we are looking to trade up from a little red paper clip to something of value to the Community Center.
This project is inspired by the true story of a Canadian blogger, Kyle Macdonald, who traded up from a red paperclip to a… house! For further details, please visit http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com/. While we do not yet have a house in our cache, so far, we have traded our paperclips for a range of items including air conditioning units and an autographed copy of a book by acclaimed writer, Ian McEwan.
